Cover picture for the articleBack in my salad days when I first was becoming interested in jazz, I ran across the wonderful name “Muggsy Spanier.” For some reason, that nickname made me think of him as a boxer, and when I first saw a picture of him shortly thereafter, I thought he looked as if he had gone quite a few rounds. (As I later found out, Spanier, a great baseball fan, took the sobriquet from John “Muggsy” McGraw, manager of the New York Giants baseball team and bestowed it upon himself.)
