    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Mose Allison has been honoured as one of the 2013 Jazz Masters by the National Endowment for the Arts at Lincoln Centre. After 65 years on the road, he recently announced his retirement from public performance. Mose is best-known as the creator of pithy, sardonic songs that have been covered by Van Morrison, Elvis Costello and The Clash, amongst others.

    All this week, we'll be featuring Mose Allison songs. Expect to hear recordings by the man himself, as well as one or two intriguing cover versions, nightly from 10pm...

    July 20th - 26th: Helen Merrill

    Helen Merrill sang with Charlie Parker in the 1940s. Though her first album was arranged by Quincy Jones (and featured trumpeter Clifford Brown), this American artist has achieved greatest recognition while living in Europe and Japan. Hear Helen recorded with Gordon Beck, Hank Jones, Stan Getz et al, each night this week on BLUE.

    July 27th - August 3rd: Nocturnes

    They are described as a single-movement character piece usually written for solo piano. First created by Irishman John Field – forever associated with Frederic Chopin - but the list of nocturne composers is extensive. We’ll draw from that list all week – the dictionary defines them as “inspired by, or evocative of, the night”. Nocturnes - the perfect fit for The Blue Of The Night.
