Jazz Quanta: January

Read "Jazz Quanta: January" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

The beauty of having written for All About Jazz since the early years is that I was given one of the first personal columns, “Bailey's Bundles," as named by publisher Michael Ricci. I have used it mostly for thematically-based multiple record reviews, then my end-of-the-year lists. As the years sped on, I began to concentrate on ...
