About the album

Normally when Dexter toured in Europe back in the sixties and seventies, it was as a solo musician picking up local rhythm sections in each city along the way. But in Holland, he had a “working band” with Rein de Graaff on piano, Henk Haverhoek on bass and Eric Ineke on drums. 
The main reason for this was that their booker Wim Wigt managed to find gigs in Hilversum, Leiden, Veendam, Venlo, Zwolle, Den Haag, Heemskerk, Amsterdam, De Woude, Rotterdam, and Eschede. When Dexter would tell people about all the towns he had played in during his time in Holland, they were incredulous. He would tell them that there were jazz lovers in all these places in a country the size of the state of Maryland. 

Dexternity is a tribute by 'the working band drummer' Eric Ineke. This tribute includes some of Dexter’s signature compositions including Fried Bananas, The Panther (composed in tribute to the Black Panthers), Tivoli, Boston Bernie, Sticky Wicket, Soy Califa, Mrs. Miniver, and Cheese Cake. They have also included the classic Body and Soul,  the composition that “must” be played every night, according to Dexter Gordon.
