Dexter Gordon - More Than You Know

Don McGlynn, Denmark, 1996

52 min.DK/Documentary

The first biographical documentary of the widely loved and respected jazz artist Dexter Gordon. Using a wide variety of revealing footage - including virtually unseen material of this great artist in private, in performance and in various interview settings - this documentary is very nearly a musical autobiography. With profound comments coming from Gordon about his career, his associates and formative influences, Gordon is essentially the narrator of his own life and the romatic jazz world he inhabited.
