Tonight in the Explorers Room: Chappell Dance and Mood Music Library


Tonight's Explorers Room follows up on a previous special program focused on the Chappell Mood Music library series (archived here) with another Chappell showcase, this time the Dance and Mood Music series.  Grooves abound, with heavy drums, blaring guitars, and wild organs, but there's enough Baroque oddities, exotica, and small-ensemble jazz to keep it extremely varied as we run through the series from Vol. 1 (1966) to Vol. 21 (1973).  Tune in, get your library card.
