About ‘Mooney’s Blues’ The Album Launch
Nigel Mooney brings his big band set up to The Sugar Club to launch his latest album ‘Mooneys Blues’
Nigel Mooney is widely regarded as Ireland’s leading jazz singer and guitarist. A charismatic figure on the Dublin jazz and blues scenes since the early 1980’s, his Gripewater Blues Band spearheaded the blues movement in Ireland and drew many fans of both jazz and the blues.
His first album, “All My Love’s In Vain” (Rubyworks) was released in 2005 to critical acclaim and quickly became one of Ireland’s highest selling albums by a jazz artist. The single, Beautiful Day, charted on the Irish Hit Parade.
The follow-up album, “The Bohemian Mooney”, released in 2013, was The Irish Times Jazz Album of the Year and featured guest appearances by Georgie Fame and Louis Stewart.
