Vinyl Vault

This Tuesday from 8 to 10 pm, host Geoff Anderson presents “The Best of the Vinyl Vault.” It will be two hours of all vinyl, all from Anderson’s basement, featuring the best cuts heard on the Vinyl Vault over the years.

This summer, Geoff Anderson marks 30 years as a volunteer announcer at KUVO, almost all of it on Tuesday nights and an all vinyl show seemed like a great way to acknowledge the milestone. “After all,” he said, “what could possibly be more fun than playing my favorite albums on the radio?”

The Vinyl Vault this week will feature a posthumous Duke Ellington release, “Up in Duke’s Workshop.” Recorded in 1969, 1970, 1971 and 1972, the album was not released until 1979 on the Pablo label. The album features Ellington and his band working out tunes that were later rerecorded as well as revisiting some old favorites. It’s Ellington that you normally don’t hear on KUVO because this one’s not in the KUVO library. Hear it on the Vinyl Vault with Geoff Anderson this Tuesday, August 14 at 8:30 on KUVO Jazz.

This week’s Vinyl Vault will feature a 1976 recording from the Toshiko Akiyoshi – Lew Tabackin Big Band entitled “Tales of a Courtesan.” This was the second album from the highly-acclaimed band led by the husband and wife team. As was typical during the band’s 30-year tenure, this album features intricate and inventive arrangements by Akiyoshi and top-flight playing by the entire band and especially by Tabackin on tenor sax and flute. Tune in this Tuesday, August 7 at 8:30 pm for the Vinyl Vault on KUVO Jazz.
