Live in Holland 1964


Dexter Gordon set the audience straight on the name and the origin of this tune.

It's "Loose Walk" and it was written by saxophonist Sonny Stitt.

Stitt and Gordon, both members of the LA jazz scene, went way back. They sat in the tenor sax section of Billy Eckstine's big band nearly 20 years earlier when Stitt first started playing tenor professionally.

The confusion over the name of this tune and its origin is a jazz mystery. Many call it Blues Walk and attribute it to Clifford Brown.
