Released in 1955, Dexter Gordon’s ‘Daddy Plays the Horn’ captures the legendary saxophonist at a point at which his art form and technique was still developing – as such, it’s a valuable document of artistic development, with his backing band swinging beautifully and ably assisting Gordon’s unique, slightly-off-kilter style. A brace of great originals sit nicely with covers of jazz standards, including an essential take on ‘Autumn In New York’.
