The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Nightly, 10pm - 1am

    Coming up on the next programme...

    Nov 22.  On this Saturday's BLUE, Eamonn seamlesslessly (?) intersperses the new with the old: Philippe Cassard interprets Schubert; ECM trio Jokleba plays original fare from a recent issue; virtuoso bass-player Stanley Clarke leads his band on the just-released "Up"; Marc-André Hamelin performs a low-key solo piano piece by the sadly-neglected Georgy Catoire, from a recording that was first made available in 1999; we'll hear more from Anouar Brahem (see BLUE TUNES, below); Les Lunaisiens advise workers, en Francais, to arise from our slumbers; spanking-new John Surman (pictured), featured with the Bergen Big Band; and Andreas Staier perfoms a Schubert variation on a period piano. 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.
