    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.
