The Either/Orchestra

The Either/Orchestra is one of the Boston scene's major exports to the world of jazz. Since 1985, the 10-piece E/O has been crisscrossing the US and the planet, as well as traversing the length and breadth of jazz history, and putting its own unique stamp on a startlingly wide range of styles.

Spiff Wiegand

Spiff Wiegand juggles up to seven instruments simultaneously without using loopers or other technological trickery. He creates complete textures that are as unexpectedly musical as they are visually impressive. He has been compared to Hank Williams, The Mountain Goats, and They Might Be Giants.

Dan Karlsen

Sunday, June 10, 2012 - 10:30pm

The Robert Talbott vineyards in California boast some five hundred acres of grape vines. The Talbott name is synonomous with high end end neckwear but owner Robert Talbott found his true passion in winemaking. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al is joined by Talbott chief winemaker, Dan Karlsen. Dan's unique approach to making wine is his obsession with the center of the grape. Ypu'll hear how he turns good fruit into great wines.

Richard Baummer

Local singer and guitarist Richard Baummer brings his eclectic mix of unique covers and original material to the Java Room’s intimate setting. Selections range from singer-songwriter classics in original arrangements to contemporary alternative.

The OGD Jazz Trio

"The OGD Jazz Trio" is a classic Hammond B3 Organ, Drum and Guitar Trio similar to the famous setups of Wes Montgomery and Jimmy Smith and several others. There is something so interesting about the sound of a Jazz Guitar and the Hammond B3. We will be playing tunes penned by Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrel, Miles Davis etc. Steve Esposito will be on the Organ. Mike Caruso will be on the Guitar and the wonderful Joe Lis will be on Drums. We hope you can join us for some fun music and the unique sound of this combination of instruments.

Know Your Host:
Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
