Season's greetings from Night Lights via holiday ambassador Mr. Cole:
Many listeners know Peggy Lee as a great jazz singer, but she was also a prolific writer of songs—composing or co-composing nearly 200 of them.
A so-called “biopic” of the blues composer W.C. Handy’s life, St. Louis Blues was Nat King Cole’s only role as a leading man.
An iconic singer, a songwriter (or two) named Irene, lost love and inspiration, and a history-mystery of identity.
A salute to warmer weather, including music from Thelonious Monk & Milt Jackson, Anita O'Day, Nat King Cole, June Christy, Billie Holiday, and more.
