Alto saxophonist Jackie McLean and tenorist Dexter Gordon join forces for this live recording at the Montmartre Jazzhus in Copenhagen, taped over two nights in 1973. They're well accompanied by the Kenny Drew Trio (with Drew on piano, Niels Pedersen on bass and drummer Alex Riel). The chemistry between McLean and Gordon is obvious, as they are both at the top of their game and very comfortable taking extended solos, with most of the performances exceeding ten minutes and several approaching 20 minutes in length. Highlights include the two treatments of Ferde Grofe's popular "'On the Trail," (marked by Gordon's humorous quotes and McLean's inventive solos), along with Charlie Parker's rarely heard "Another Hair-Do." Originally issued on two separate Steeplechase LPs (The Source and The Meeting), this two-CD set is a memorable part of the discographies of both Jackie McLean and Dexter Gordon.
