When Bailey looks back now, over a long and fruitful career, the one that started out in the dance halls of post-war Swindon, and the one that took him from Sydney, Australia to the NBC studio where The Tonight Show was filmed to the famous jazz clubs in San Francisco, he remembers the people that helped and influenced him along the way. He’s made a career by staying true to his sterling artistry — a craft that he’s been able to adapt to the unique demands of big band swing to jazz to movie soundtracks to the crazy versatility that’s required for in-house TV studio bands.

Oh, God, cornball stuff. He was wonderful to me. Talk about heaven, to play with him and Monty bassist Monty Budwig on a regular basis, it was unbelievable. He was a fantastic player. The first track on the album “Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus” begins simply enough: Peter was the drummer for them and he used to come over to my house and he taught me how to read drum parts. It’s all over when the great Joe Pass has to play this crap.
