Columbia/Legacy's 1998 release of Live at Carnegie Hall: Complete contains the full set of the legendary September 1978 concert that found Dexter Gordon and Johnny Griffin at a peak. Supported by Rufus Reid, Eddie Gladden, and George Cables, the two saxophonists smoke on a selection of standards and contemporary workouts, highlighted by "Secret Love," "The End of a Love Affair," and "Blues Up and Down." Gordon devotees in particular will find this a nice addition to their collections.
