I had an interesting rehearsal Thurs night. There was a sub on Bass and
also John Leys wife Beverly brought some vocal charts in. I looked at the
arranger on the vocal chart and who should it be but:
Very nice arrangements. I briefly explained to the group that he and I are
on the "Trombone-L" and told them also that I'd heard his stuff on BBC
radio. Some of the others recognized the name from albums.
So the rehearsal went on and I noticed the bass player was pretty good. In
particular, he read real well (unfortunately, he was way on the other side
of the band. . so I couldn't hear up close). We had one chart on "What's
New" that features the Bass playing the melody throughout, he read it down
I was packing up as the Bass player went out, and a trumpeter said:
"Goodnight Don". . . .
I said: "Who was that?" The trumpeter, said "Don Bagley"
No wonder he sounded good-he's on about a third of my record collection.
