· · Part of Legacy's Jazz Moods series, this collection of Dexter Gordon ballads is taken from his run on Columbia Records in the late period of his career. While nothing here is mind-blowing, Gordon remained one of the great lyrical players throughout his long tenure in jazz and that gift is in much evidence here, especially on cuts such as "How Long Has This Been Going On," .

"How long has this been going on" sure sounds like something a guy would say to his cheating lover, but this song has a very different meaning. Ace bass player Terry Comer was working with other bands - he played briefly with The Sutherland Brothers and Quiver - and he didn't tell his bandmates, who felt cheated when they found out.
This period also saw a number of side projects, including the live jazz performances of 's How Long Has This Been Going On, from the same year Tell Me Something: The Songs of Mose Allison, and 's The Skiffle Sessions – Live in Belfast , all of which found Morrison paying tribute to his early musical influences.
