Don McGlynn

Dexter Gordon: More Than You Know

Edition 1997
52' - 1996 - Biography, Documentary - Dialogue: English
Director: Don McGlynn Composer: Palle Mikkelborg, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker With: Ben Webster, Woody Shaw, Phil Woods, Steve Lacy
This film is the first biographical documentary of this widely loved and respected jazz artist. Using a wide variety of footage - including virtually unseen material of this great artist in private, in performance and in various interview settings - the film is nearly a musical biography. 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 romantic jazz world he inhabited.
