Signed to CTI/A&M in August 1967.
About Horizon Records, Desmond told Billboard, "The relationship has been terrific. John's [Snyder]unique in the record business. He's the most understanding, helpful executive I've met. He combines a rare number of qualities. He's very musical, very alert, very efficient and very sympathetic. He likes the kind of music I play and I like the kind of music he records."
