Gordon, Dexter - Daddy Plays the Horn (180 gr. vinyl)
Daddy Plays the Horn (180 gr. vinyl)
2017 Vinyl Passion
On ’Daddy Plays the Horn’ (1956) Gordon is being joined by Kenny Drew (piano), Leroy Vinnegar (bass), and Larry Marable (drums). The update of Charlie “Bird” Parker’s Bop standard ’Confirmation’ is taken at a steady midtempo pace, allowing plenty of room for the participants to have their say and not get in the way of the melody. Gordon seems considerably more relaxed and comfortable as he spreads line upon line of inspired improvisation. Drew is once again a real treat to hear briefly taking charge of the rhythm section.
