Gettin' Around is an album by American jazz saxophonist Dexter Gordon recorded in 1965 and released on the Blue Note label. The CD reissue added two additional recordings from the sessions as bonus tracks.
The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos was less enthusiastic and awarded the album 3½ stars stating "While this is not Gordon's ultimate hard bop date, it is reflective of his cooling out in Europe, adopting a tonal emphasis more under the surface than in your face. It's not essential, but quite enjoyable, and does mark a turning point in his illustrious career".
