    The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

    This week, we feature the recordings of a blues singer, guitarist and harmonica-player who enjoyed much success with Chess Records during the 1950s - the one and only Howlin' Wolf.

    Blue Tunes

    The Blue of the Night is firmly focussed on the master this week, with a recording of J.S. Bach's Violin Concertos by the Dunedin Consort. Although Bach was most famous as an organist and keyboard player, he was also a fine violinist; his characteristic flair is evident in the many dazzling moments he creates. Under the musical direction of John Butt, the CD includes one of his greatest masterpieces - the Double Concerto for two violins. Carl will be enjoying this recording all week on Blue.
