Clubhouse is an album by American jazz saxophonist Dexter Gordon. It was recorded in 1965, but not released until 1979 by Blue Note Records.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Robert Christgau of The Village Voice called Clubhouse "superb" and "mature late bebop".[2] Allmusic's Steve Leggett gave the album two out of five stars and said that, "far from a failed effort, Clubhouse, if not exactly a lost classic, can sit proudly in the Gordon discography".[3]
