Dexterritorys impressive set includes the gems and some lesser known pieces written by legendary saxophone player Dexter Gordon and the tightly energetic and unfailingly lyrical performance by Kevin McMahon Quartet is an outright homage to one of the greatest and, to some degree, still underrated jazz musicians of the 20th century. "And Now! their debut recording is a neo-classic album, filled with sophistication and elegance.

Dizzy once said of Dexter Gordon that “he did everything wrong and it all turned out right. He should have left his karma to science.” I think some of his “karma” is preserved by Kevin McMahon and his friends. Dexterritory is a great piece of evidence for that!

"So close to the spirit of Dex that one can mistake Kevin McMahon's ascending sax solos for a work by Dex, in a Danish or Parisian jazz club. Dexterritory demonstrates how McMahon has absorbed “everything” in Dexter’s music, including his loveable behind-the-beat phrasing which produces a relaxed, lush sound"
