    The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

    This week we feature rarities from the newly-issued "Fixin' To Die" by cult troubadour Jackson C. Frank. He released just one album in his lifetime, produced by Paul Simon in 1965.

    Helen Merrill; July 20th - 26th

    Helen Merrill (pictured) sang with Charlie Parker in the 1940s. Though her first album was arranged by Quincy Jones (and featured trumpeter Clifford Brown), this American artist has achieved greatest recognition while living in Europe and Japan. Hear Helen recorded with Gordon Beck, Stan Getz, Hank Jones et al, all this week on BLUE.

    July 27th - August 2nd

    They are described as a single-movement character piece usually written for solo piano. First created by Irishman John Field – forever associated with Frederic Chopin - but the list of nocturne composers is extensive. We’ll draw from that list all week – the dictionary defines them as “inspired by, or evocative of, the night”. Nocturnes - the perfect fit for  The Blue Of The Night.
