One Flight Up is an album by American jazz saxophonist Dexter Gordon recorded in 1964 in Paris and released on the Blue Note label. Dexter Gordon is joined by Donald Byrd, Kenny Drew, Niels-Henning Orsted and Art Taylor for this set of three delicious tunes. The album's centerpieces are two extended compositions, Donald Byrd's "Tanya" and Kenny Drew's "Coppin' The Haven."
Newly remastered for vinyl as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.
"At around 47 substantive minutes of music, One Flight Up stands as a testament to Dexter Gordon's viability as a bandleader and teammate...It's a good listen to digest all the way through, especially if you are as patient as the performers, who have a lot to say." -Michael G. Nastos, allmusic.com
