All About Jazz Is All About Buster Bailey (Today, Kinda’)

Aesthetic, not Anesthetic

Buster Bailey

Thrilled to see my review of Buster Bailey‘s All About Memphis on All About Jazz. It’s great to see my name on an article, but I’m even prouder of the fact that this underrated clarinetist cut an album as a leader and that he’s getting some attention today, right next to some musicians who just happen to be alive.

Incidentally, the album is available as a (cheap) download on Amazon. Perhaps with the right attention, the only thing that will be a footnote about Bailey will be his death.

Thanks for reading, and keep listening.

  4. Began following the Southampton University Jazz Orchestra blog site – they picked up on the Buster Bailey post I reposted from your blog. “Hands across the water…”
