The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

Nightly, 10pm - 1am

The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Thursday 22 May 2014

This week on Blue ...

Belfast blues guitarist Ronnie Greer's new CD, The Jazz Project, highlights another facet of his distinctive playing, and features some of Ireland's leading jazz musicians, including Richie Buckley, Dominic Mullan and Scott Flanigan. While the album celebrates the classic style of 50's and 60's Blue Note inspired recordings, there's also a very strong blues element throughout, aligned with some serious swinging grooves. Impressive guest vocals from Grainne Duffy and Ken Haddock. Hear it on Blue all this week.
