Bethlehem Records was a major jazz label in the 1950s formed by Gus Wildi with an impressive roster of artists including singers Nina Simone, Carmen MacRae, Chris Conner and Mel Torme, to name a few; arrangers: Marty Paich, Russ Garcia, Frank Hunter; and musicians including: Dexter Gordon, Roland Kirk, Charles Mingus, Frank Rosolino, Herbie Mann, Stan Levey, Art Blakey and many others. The label distinguished itself by giving artists creative control of their projects and presented albums of rather cutting edge graphic design. Its legacy is a lengthy discography that freshly and ambitiously captured and preserved an era of truly amazing music. For many of the artists, their first or greatest recorded work happened at Bethlehem.

During a difficult period of Dexter Gordon's life -- when he was deep in the throes of chronic drug addiction -- the artist was miraculously able to reignite his career during the latter part of 1955. After several years of being out of the spotlight, Gordon resurfaced on the Bethlehem imprint with the half-dozen sides that comprise Daddy Plays the Horn. While the support team provides Gordon top-notch contributions throughout, it is unquestionably Kenny Drew who offers the most in terms of active interaction.

The good performance of everyone involved, and the unique, unforgettable jacket, made this West Coast recording a favorite among Gordon's fans and admirers.

Recorded in September, 1955 in Hollywood. Mono. Originally released by Bethlehem as BCP36. This vinyl reissue released in UK by Pure Pleasure in 2012.
