Synopsis

Album Description
Bethlehem Records was a New York?based independent record label active in the 1950s and ?60s. It boasted an impressive array of jazz talent, including Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Mel Tormé, Dexter Gordon, and many others. Shout! Factory is proud to be reissuing some of the key Bethlehem albums. Tenor sax player Dexter Gordon was a mainstay of the Los Angeles scene in the 1940s, but involvement with drugs, including time in prison, kept him largely out of music for a decade. In 1961, he made a major comeback, with a string of classic albums on the Blue Note and Steeplechase labels and a career that lasted well into the 1980s. Daddy Plays The Horn, one of only three sessions that he recorded in the 1950s, shows that Dexter?s talents never deserted him.

DEXTER GETTING HIS CHOPS BACK
James E. Dollison | Chicago | 02/25/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"IT IS MY UNDERSTANING THAT THIS "ALBUM" WAS RECORDED IN THE 50'S. DEXTER HAD NOT TOO LONG GOTTEN OUT OF THE JOINT FOR A DRUG BEEF. THERE ARE MOMENTS WHEN HE SOUNDS BRILLIANT. BETHELHAM AND SAVOY RECORDS DID NOT ALWAYS EMPLOYE THE BEST RECORDING TECHNIQUES OR USE THE BEST RECORDING EQUIPMENT !"
