This 1963 date is titled for Dexter Gordon's living in self-imposed Parisian exile and recording there with two other exptriates and a French native. Along with Gordon, pianist Bud Powell and Kenny "Klook" Clarke were living in the City of Lights and were joined by the brilliant French bassman Pierre Michelot. This is a freewheeling bop date with the band working out on such categoric standards as "Scrapple from the Apple," and "A Night in Tunisia.

I thought I might be able to pass this one up-not close enough to the culmination of Dexter's resurgence, too late in Bud's career, too far from the Blue Note studios, too dependent on a French (or expatriate) rhythm section.

Our Man In Paris was Dexter’s first Blue Note message from France. John Fordham described it as a tenor-sax tour de force from a key figure bridging bebop and its swing predecessor. Dexter’s notes are hard and precise, in elongated runs. every time I see a Dexter Gordon album I remember the history with Miles Davis, that he implied with Miles Davis clothes, saying that he’s is out of style, that he have to let the beard gro. his is bulling, man!
