Colin Bailey is best known for his work with the Vince Guaraldi trio, whose inspired music helped make the Charlie Brown television shows famous. Colin, though, has played drums with many of the best musicians in the business, from Victor Feldman, Miles Davis, Stan Getz, and Frank Sinatra, to Joe Pass, Mel Torme, and Joao Gilberto. Colin tells Colin about growing up in wartime England, his long career in jazz, his thoughts on the Beatles and Ginger Baker, his work on The Tonight Show, and why Astrud Gilberto owes him fifty dollars.
In the intro, Colin talks about Lucky, the last movie starring the great Harry Dean Stanton. To conclude the podcast, Colin offers some wisdom from Charles Bukowski about getting your work done.
Intro music: "Samba de Orfeu" from Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus and "Charlie Brown Theme" from A Boy Named Charlie Brown.
