I’m Arturo Gómez inviting you to accompany me every Monday at Noon for our weekly excursion listening to the latest arrivals to KUVO Jazz, often debuting music ahead of their scheduled release date. In addition to premiering the music, I’ll share with a few tidbits about the artist, in particular if it’s a new artist.
