Happy Birthday, Dexter Gordon! The lengthy, swinging tenor & rhythm formula that Dexter Gordon perfected coined him a major force in the emergence of modern tenor saxophone styles.
Today, we celebrate what would’ve been his 91st Birthday with a free download of the song, “Daddy Plays The Horn,” a happy, twelve bar blues, medium tempo track that was considered so good it became the title track for his 1955 release on Bethlehem Records.
"Daddy Plays The Horn" has been remastered from the original analog tape recordings and is available on 180-Gram vinyl here, CD here and exclusively selected as part of the “Mastered for iTunes” program as a digital download here. We also have a limited run of Dexter Gordon t-shirts available here.
Enjoy your free download here before the promotion ends on February 28th, 2014 at 12:00AM.
