“Dexter Gordon is warming up as this Jazz at the Maintenance Shop gig opens, still cutting an imposing presence as he ponders his saxophone. 'It's You or No One' features a commanding Gordon solo, followed by a hair-raising ride by pianist George Cables. 'The Panther' features drummer Eddie Gladden as a dynamo, swinging like crazy, with bassist Rufus Reid the perfect pocketkeeper. Gordon switches to soprano for 'Alone Together' and takes a searing ride. The saxophonist is a huge presence on 'Back Stairs,' building to a remarkable peak; then Cables unleashes a flight of fancy filled with witty asides, while Gladden sets the place on fire. THIS IS SOME STARTLING JAZZ.” – Robin Tolleson,Down Beat. 58 minutes.
