Schlafly Library


The St. Louis Public Library is proud to collaborate with Jazz St. Louis for this special event with author Maxine Gordon. Sophisticated Giant presents the life and legacy of tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon (1923 - 1990), one of the major innovators of modern jazz. In a context of biography, history, and memoir, Maxine Gordon has completed the book that her late husband began, weaving his "solo" turns with her voice and a chorus of voices from past and present.
