It’s already 80 degrees. You wake up early in the morning when it’s quiet and before the sun gets too high in the sky. Throw on as little as possible and step outdoors. Maybe you feel the soft breezes across the Caribbean or the sexy steamy humidity of the French Quarter. Maybe you get swallowed by the heat in Central and South Africa or the asphalt street corners and front stoops in any American city. Wherever you turn, it’s summer.

Whether Ghanaian highlife, Cuban Son, American funk, Cool Jazz, Brazilian Bossa Nova, Borcia Boogaloo, or Island calypso, music the world over tells us it’s summer and time to have a good time. We’ve all been cooped up for more than a year and people are ready for some hot fun. And so is The Jazz River which presents two weeks of Hot Fun in the Summertime.

Tune in with host Matthew Goldwasser on Sunday, July 18 and again on July 25 at 5 pm, for music to match the summer heat. Only on KUVO JAZZ!
