À propos de Benny Bailey
A dazzling trumpet player, Benny Bailey keeps the Bop fires burning while fitting into most any small group or big band setting. He played an important role in the Dizzy Gillespie and Lionel Hampton outfits of the 1940s and early '50s before he left the United States for Europe. Although he played regularly with many of the top visiting and expatriate jazz musicians (Stan Getz, for instance), many in the U.S. forgot about Bailey until Quincy Jones composed a spotlight for him entitled "Meet Benny Bailey." He remains a big name in Europe and regularly records there.
