Dexter’s widow Maxine, responding to the honour said: “When Dexter Gordon recorded the album GO on Blue Note Records in 1962, he had no idea that it would become the classic jazz album it became. He loved the album because of the musicians Sonny Clark, Butch Warren, and Billy Higgins who, as he said, ‘played as one sound.’ I know Dexter would be honoured and delighted with this honour.”
