    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Mose Allison has been honoured as one of the 2013 Jazz Masters by the National Endowment for the Arts at Lincoln Centre. After 65 years on the road, he recently announced his retirement from public performance. Mose is best-known as the creator of pithy, sardonic songs that have been covered by Van Morrison, Elvis Costello and The Clash, amongst others.

    All this week, we'll be featuring Mose Allison songs. Expect to hear recordings by the man himself, as well as one or two intriguing cover versions, nightly from 10pm...

    Anouar Brahem: November 17th - 23rd

    Tunisian oud-player Anouar Brahem has over the years created his own delicate sound – deeply rooted in Arabic classical and folk music yet infused with contemporary jazz sensibilities. His music is the real example of fusion – a troubadour of world music; Brahem’s extensive catalogue on ECM Records is our Blue Tunes focus all this week.
     
     

    Teddy Wilson: November 24th - 30th

    From the 1930s until the 1980s, Teddy Wilson provided accompaniment for Louis Armstrong, Benny Carter, Benny Goodman, Lester Young et al. He was Billie Holiday's musical director and made a number of fine albums under his own name. This polished pianist is featured each night this week on Blue.
