What's your favorite Dexter Gordon LP?

Unlike nearly every jazz artist with some longevity, I don't think Dexter ever made a bad LP.  From his early 50's stuff to the late 80's, Dexter stuff was always interesting and enjoyable. 
What's your favorite?

For a long time it was a tie between "Go" and "A Swingin' Affair". But that changed when I picked up "Live at Montmarte Jazzhus". Maybe because it's live vs. studio. Or maybe because it's 3 disks vs. single disks, so like 3 is better than 1. Whatev, it's my fav.

Easy ... "One Flight Up". It was my first Dexter Gordon LP, and still favorite. Picked it up over 40 years ago. He is smokin' on long track "Tanya"!
