Description


Dexter Gordon wasn't quite THE Dexter Gordon when he made Daddy Plays the Horn, but his unique, obtuse way of playing the saxophone and hitting his rhythm section's playing at weird, swinging angles was already fully formed for this album. Recorded in between periods of tumult and distress--he was in and out of jail with a bear of a heroin addiction--Gordon is one of the finest men to ever put a reed in his mouth, and this album--particularly "Autumn in New York"--belongs in every discerning Jazzbo's collection.
