Remembering Don Bagley


Jazz bassist, Don Bagley, left us on July 26, 2012.  He was 85.  Born in Salt Lake City, he played with such greats as Shorty Sherock, Bill Holman and Stan Kenton.  He also did session work with Nat King Cole and Maynard Ferguson.  The tribute song I have chosen is a performance by Julie London, with Don being the only player accompanying her.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.
