Join us this Sunday on Jazz Matinee with special guests Dan Gabel from the authentic 18-piece Big Band “Dan Gabel and The Abletones” and vocalists Amanda Carrand. Dan will bring few selections from his vinyl collection of over 6,000 records from the big band era. Amanda will be speaking about the American Big Band Preservation Society, an educational organization dedicated to collecting and archiving arrangements of the big bands, which are made available to high school and college music departments free of charge. The American Big Band Preservation Society also holds clinics in the greater Worcester area to teach students about big band playing, history, and the present and future of the big bands.

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.
