MAXINE GORDON

A sophisticated giant

Married to Dexter Gordon, who died in 1990, Maxine Gordon published Sophisticated Giant, a book about the life and legacy of the illustrious tenor saxophonist. Dexter had started writing this autobiography and, after his passing, his wife finished it, marrying his voice with hers. This meeting with Dexter Gordon’s life partner is an opportunity to dive back into the life and work of the iconic musician, to whom Dizzy Gillespie once said: “Man, you must leave your karma to science.”
