The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Thursday 5 December 2013
Belfast blues guitarist Ronnie Greer's new CD, The Jazz Project, highlights another facet of his distinctive playing, and features some of Ireland's leading jazz musicians, including Richie Buckley, Dominic Mullan and Scott Flanigan. While the album celebrates the classic style of 50's and 60's Blue Note inspired recordings, there's also a very strong blues element throughout, aligned with some serious swinging grooves. Impressive guest vocals from Grainne Duffy and Ken Haddock. Hear it on Blue all this week.
Carl was joined by the Barnsley Nightingale, Kate Rusby for a Blue Room Session. Accompanied by Damien O'Kane, she sang a few songs from her latest album 'Life in a Paper Boat' and chatted with Carl about her musical life.
