On Saturday, June 12, at 10 pm, KUVO’s archive 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.

Tune in to hear the recording from David Amram’s visit to KUVO in 2005, where he reflects on the early days of the jazz-poetry mash-up, and he shares the mic with Colorado poet Lou Malandra. And from his Denver stop on a 2012 tour with Josh White, Jr., Amram and White shared a few folk and blues tunes with a live KUVO audience.

Catch the highlights from the improvised performances of David Amram, recorded as they were broadcast live from KUVO’s Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio!

That’s this Saturday night, June 12, with host Susan Gatschet. “On Stage,” a KUVO JAZZ exclusive!
