Bob Gordon Discography







Dear Jazz lovers,


This is the very first “Artist discography” published on my website. It will be followed in the coming months and years by other important projects with significant new discoveries, particularly regarding Art Pepper and Hal McKusick. Of course the list is not finished. I have many other discographical projects in preparation.


This Bob Gordon discography is based on several sources and on my own researches.

“One thing I am sure of is that a definitive discography does not exist! It is a complete illusion or simple vanity! It is never finished and always in progress, but it is a fascinating work that sometimes permits amazing discoveries. So, your corrections, additions, new informations, suggestions and miscellaneous comments will be greatly appreciated. Do not hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks for your attention and good reading!”
