My Flame Burns Blue is the twenty-second album by Elvis Costello and was originally released on Deutsche Grammophon in 2006. It is his second official live release after the El Mocambo bonus disc issued with the 2½ Years box set. It consists of recordings from the North Sea Jazz Festival in July 2004, made with Steve Nieve and The Metropole Orkest, with Vince Mendoza conducting. It peaked at #2 on the Billboard Jazz albums chart and at No. 188 on the Billboard 200. In addition to items from Costello's back catalog, the album presents songs written for different projects for various kinds of ensembles. The Charles Mingus composition "Hora Decubitus" initially appeared on the album Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus. "Upon A Veil of Midnight Blue" would be recorded by the posthumous Charles Mingus Orchestra, initially written for rhythm and blues singer Charles Brown. "Speak Darkly My Angel" was written for Anne Sofie von Otter and the Brodsky Quartet, while "Put Away Forbidden Playthings" was his contribution to a concert commemorating the death of Henry Purcell. A version of "Almost Ideal Eyes" with the Attractions had been an outtake for All This Useless Beauty. 180-gram 2-LP
