The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Nightly, 10pm - 1am

    Coming up on Friday's programme...

    Sept 19. Whether you get out and about yourself on this, Culture Night 2014, Eamonn returns for his own "Culture Night": the familiar blend of relaxing-yet-stimulating late night sounds, including symphonic Nielsen; a sample from "Moderato cantabile", the tasteful new duet release by Anja Lechner and Francois Couturier (pictured); some solo Ellington (a week before the Dublin City Jazz Orchestra perform his "Sacred Music" at the 2014 Limerick Jazz Festival); the incredible voice of Karen Dalton (who also played banjo, back in the day); Debussy's G Minor string quartet, as well as a performance of a Debussy prelude by pianist Ivan Ilic; Hank Jones, Oscar Peterson and Ella Fitzgerald, from 3 vintage MPS albums that have been recently made available on iTunes; Michael Tippett's "Go Down, Moses"; singer-songwriter Jon Allen; more selections from the Dankworths (see BLUE TUNES, below); and Nikolai Lugansky. playing a piano sonata by Rachmaninoff. 10pm start-time...

    The Dankworths: Sept  15th - 21st

    This week, our common thread is an English jazz dynasty: the Dankworth family. Reed-player-cum-bandleader John Dankworth worked in film and TV (he wrote “The Avengers” and the “Tomorrow’s World” themes). Wife, Cleo Laine, often recorded with him. All this week, we’ll also hear from their children, Alec and Jacqui Dankworth.
