Drummer Dave Bailey provided the beat behind some of the great Jazz artists of the day including Johnny Hodges, Kenny Dorham, Gerry Mulligan, Cal Tjader, and Horace Silver. Many credit Bailey with the popularity of Bossa Nova. He later became involved in music education in New York City and the executive director of the Jazzmobile. His 1961 album “Bash,” released on Jazz Line Records, is worth up to $1,500.00 today.
