Reading like a jazz composition, Maxine Gordon combines biography, history, and memoir in completing the book that her late husband, Dexter Gordon, began. Angela Davis calls Sophisticated Giant "An extraordinary gift. Maxine Gordon's rigorously researched, jazz-inflected, genre-bending account provides an appreciation of Dexter Gordon's musical genius and his wish for major social transformation."
