Biography

Dave Bailey studied drumming in New York upon completing his military service as a pilot in World War II. He's not commonly credited for his role in helping popularize the bossa nova in the '60s, but Bailey learned the rhythm while touring South America in 1959 and helped many American drummers master the sound. A solid swing and bop player, Bailey's credits include stints with Johnny Hodges, Charles Mingus, Lou Donaldson, Curtis Fuller and Horace Silver. But most jazz fans remember his contributions to various Gerry Mulligan groups from 1954-1968, and his work with Clark Terry and Bob Brookmeyer in the '60s. Bailey returned to duty as a pilot and flight instructor in 1969, temporarily ending his music involvement. He became active in education and administration in 1973, and has been executive director of The Jazzmobile in New York City. ~ Ron Wynn
