"Biting The Apple being recorded around the same time as his 'Homecoming' (CBS) album sounds much better with strong backing by pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Al Foster." - Oakland Tribune


"Dexter in command, authoritative and muscularly assertive as ever." - Mike Hennessey, Jazz Journal


"Excellent representation of his strength and subtlety in this format." - Jazz Magazine


"Many of Dexter Gordon's finest recordings were cut in Europe just prior to his triumphant return to the United States. This album was recorded just weeks before and it is one of the veteran tenor's best. With strong assistance from pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Al Foster, Dexter plays exciting solos on "I'll Remember April," a warm version of "Skylark" and his two originals, "Apple Jump" and "A La Modal." It is highly recommended, as are all of Dexter Gordon's SteepleChase recordings from this period." - Scott Yanow, All Music
