Netflix Movies Starring Dick Stabile

Extrovert saxophonist and bandleader, who started performing in theatre bands from the age of 15. Beginning in 1926, Stabile worked for a decade as a sideman with the orchestras of George Olsen and Ben Bernie, before forming his own dance band in New York, in April 1936. Introduced by his own composition, "Blue Nocturne", Stabile enjoyed a lengthy engagement at the Lincoln Hotel in New York, before going on an extended tour of ballrooms and hotels across the United States. At this time, he featured a predominant reed sextet and several good musicians, including composer/arranger Chauncey Gray, as well as vocalists Paula Kelly and Gracie Barrie. The latter wound up to become Mrs. Stabile and fronted the orchestra, when her husband was called up for military service in the Coast Guard in 1942. After World War II, Stabile based himself on the West Coast and led his band for eight years at Ciro's Le Disc in West Hollywood. Read more on iMDB
