This Sunday, September 23, at 4 pm, KUVO’s re-broadcast show “On Stage” features the jazz and poetry of David Amram. Amram was there in clubs of Greenwich Village in the 1950s when Beat Poets first set their verse to jazz. Since then his music and compositions have touched the big screen and crossed jazz, classical and Latin music genres.

This Sunday, September 16, KUVO celebrates the birth of piano virtuoso Henry Butler (born September 21, 1949) by playing recordings from his many performances in the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio.

National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15 since the Reagan-era law was enacted in 1988) celebrates the contributions of Latinos in virtually every sector of American society – business, visual and literary arts, science, health, the environment, education, government and law, the military, family, communications, religion, and of course, music.

This Sunday, September 2, at 4 pm, KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” features one of the top touring jazz trios in the nation – Akiko Tsuruga, Jeff Hamilton and Graham Dechter this summer at the Vail Jazz Festival.
