This 1962 jazz album by saxophonist Dexter Gordon features the lineup of Sonny Clark, Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. This was the same quartet from the classic album "Go!", which was recorded only days earlier. In 1962, there was no stopping Dexter Gordon. The first great bebop tenor-saxophonist, Gordon was in one of his peak periods. He contributed two songs (including the heated "Soy Califa"), swings hard on "You Stepped Out Of A Dream" and caresses the melodies of "Don't Explain" and "Until The Real Thing Comes Along". With his huge tone, witty style and ability to swing at every tempo, Dexter Gordon could not be beat when he played the music he loved. "A Swingin' Affair", which also features outstanding playing from Sonny Clark and Billy Higgins, is one of his truly great recordings. The definitive versions of Blue Note are on XRCD24 - the optimization of CD mastering and manufacturing. Plays on all standard CD players.
