Diskografi

Spelade på 1940-talet med bopmusiker som Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie och Bud Powell. Under större delen av 1950-talet satt han i fängelse för narkotikabrott, men på 1960-talet gjorde han comeback. - - - Han turnerade flitigt i Europa och blev mycket populär i Sverige. Senare återvände han till USA, där han spelade huvudrollen i Bertrand Taverniers film "Round midnight" (1986). Gordon spelade kraftfullt och personligt och hade nästan samma stil under hela sitt liv. Han påverkade många andra tenorsaxofonister, bl.a. John Coltrane.
