    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    This week, we feature recordings by John Scofield and Vince Mendoza, in advance of the Irish premiere of Scofield and Mendoza's Grammy-winning album 54 in Dublin on March 12th.

    Tom Jobim Tribute: January 26th - February 1st

    The cellist/arranger Jacques Morelenbaum and his singer/wife, Paula, were a big part of the life of Antonio Carlos Jobim (pictured), shaping the music of his last recordings. They paid a fitting tribute to “Tom” by recording an album in his Rio de Janeiro home studio - suitably titled "Casa".  We mark Tom Jobim’s birthday this week by shining the spotlight on this moving tribute with Ryucihi Sakamoto on piano and Jobim’s son Paulo on guitar.
