    Mark Murphy;  March 9th - 15th


    Veteran jazz singer Mark Murphy turns 82 this week. His debut album was released in 1956 and a 2013 studio recorded album was an impressive tribute to Shirley Horn. HIs most recent release “Shadows” is a collection of mostly original songs recorded back in 1996 – hitherto only available through fan-sites. Blue plays tracks from that and his other great recordings all this week.
