Tribute To Dexter composed by Mike Curtis. Saxophone Quartet. For Saxophone Quartet (SATB). Full Score and Set of Parts. Published by Advance Music (AV.7617).

The sophisticated giant, tenor man Dexter Gordon lived from 1923 to 1990. He developed a worldwide fame for his big, gutsy sound, his command of jazz vocabulary, and his ability to inspire audiences. "Tribute to Dexter" takes a signature lick of Gordon's and works it into prominence within two contrasting movements. The first movement, Blue, is lyrical and subtle in its treatment, with a steady, patterned accompaniment created to facilitate ballad-tempo solos (written or improvised). Boppin', the second movement, uses offbeat rhythms to displace the beat and create contrast. An effective and innovative way to end either a concert or to use as an encore.
