18-12-2018 12:00:00 18-12-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon | 12:00 PM Dexter Gordon the icon is the Dexter beloved and celebrated on albums, on film and in jazz lore — even in a street named for him in Copenhagen. But this image of the cool jazzman fails to come to terms with the multidimensional man full of humor and wisdom, a figure who struggled to reconcile being both a creative outsider who broke the rules and a comforting insider who was a son, father, husband and world citizen. Join Maxine Gordon as she attempts to fill in the gaps created by our misperceptions as well as the gaps left by her late husband Dexter himself. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=334682 92Y 92Y
