Something Different is an album led by saxophonist Dexter Gordon recorded in 1975 and released on the Danish SteepleChase label in 1980. What is different about this set (recorded in a particularly busy year for Dexter Gordon) is that the veteran tenor is joined by a trio (guitarist Philip Catherine, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Billy Higgins) that does not include a pianist. Otherwise, the music is at the same high quality level and in the same modern bop genre as one would expect. In addition to one of his originals and Slide Hampton's Yesterday's Mood, Gordon stretches out on some standards, making a classic statement on the ballad When Sunny Gets Blue.
