Noon Edition

Judy Garland on Capitol

This week on Afterglow we’ll feature a new collection of Judy Garland’s late-1950s and early-1960s Capitol albums, in honor of what would have been her 85th birthday (June 10). Though Garland has sometimes been branded as a showbiz belter, we’ll be highlighting some of the torch ballads that she recorded for Capitol with arrangers like Gordon Jenkins and Nelson Riddle. We’ll also hear new music from trumpeter Till Bronner, singer Abbey Lincoln, pianist Bill Charlap, and much more, including new reissues from Duke Ellington and Nina Simone.
