KUVO programming highlights!

This Sunday, August 26, at 4 p.m., KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” presents some of the younger voices of jazz, singer Veronica Swift with the Emmet Cohen Trio, captured earlier this summer at the Vail Jazz Festival.

This Sunday, August 19, at 4 p.m., KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” takes you into the world of singer-actress Peggy Lee through the music of bassist-vocalist Nicki Parrott as part of the Vail Jazz Festival.

Join host Michael Wulfsohn for “Wulfie’s Wax Museum,” on the Monday Night Beat, as we celebrate the 64th Birthday of the highly influential, virtuoso guitarist, Pat Metheny. A man of many guitars, musical styles, and unique effects, we’ll listen to his second album as a leader, “Watercolors,” released in 1977 on the ECM label, and the first Metheny project to feature longtime collaborator and keyboardist, Lyle Mays. This album displays Metheny’s excursions into the artistic blending of musically abstract visions, memories and emotions.

This Sunday, August 12, at 4 p.m., KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” presents the 23-year old Spanish trumpeter/vocalist Andrea Motis, captured at the Vail Jazz Festival.

Join host Michael Wulfsohn next Monday night for “Wulfie’s Wax Museum,” on the Night Beat, as we celebrate, and pay homage to Grammy and Emmy Award-winning composer, arranger, and bandleader, Patrick Williams, who left us on July 25, 2018. We’ll listen to selections from his Grammy Award winning 1973 Capitol Records album, “Threshold,” featuring trumpeter, Marvin Stamm, and reed man, Tom Scott, and we’ll also hear from his 1983 PCM Records release, “Dreams and Themes,” featuring Tom Scott, Robben Ford, and the recently departed trombonist, Bill Watrous.
