Abstract:

The collection contains materials documenting Dexter Gordon's life and work. The Biographical series includes Gordon's unfinished autobiography entitled "The saga of Society Red," which Gordon began in 1983. The Music series contains works composed by Gordon and by others and includes scores, lead sheets, parts, and fragments of pieces. It contains manuscripts, holograph manuscripts, printed items, and photocopies. Many of the items are annotated. There are full scores and parts for Gordon's works Rainbow people, Montmartre and Soy Califas! and music from the film 'Round midnight. The Correspondence series contains letters, greeting cards, postcards, telegrams, notes and related materials sent to and from Gordon and his wife Maxine. Correspondents include Jimmy Carter, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Ronald Reagan, and Bertrand Tavernier. In addition, there are original typescripts and photocopies of correspondence between Gordon and various record companies, agents, managers, and performing venues, including a cache of material between Gordon, his agent Bob Leonard and Blue Note Records executives Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion. The collection also contains a number of national and international jazz-related magazines and periodicals that feature articles on Gordon and his music. In addition, there are Gordon's copies of scripts for several motion pictures, including Awakenings and Paris jazz. The Business Papers series includes financial records, bills and receipts, as well as a collection of performing and recording contracts. The Iconography series includes photographs, contact sheets, watercolors, sketches, posters, and miscellaneous items that bear Dexter Gordon's image. The photographs are particularly extensive and feature mostly black and white prints of Gordon in formal portraits, candid shots with family and friends, and in performance. The collection also contains awards and honors, programs, and clippings.
