Our selection for March reflects the annual celebration of Women’s History Month.  The all-female sextet, Lioness makes their auspicious debut with their CD, Pride, and Joy for the Posi-Tone Records label. The members of this ensemble are young females who have already established themselves as talented players on demand for live performances and recordings sessions. All the ladies in the band contributed original compositions and the cover tunes were also written by women.

As I’ve mentioned in previous writings for CD of the Month Club selections involving Front Range musicians, we are very fortunate to have so many marvelous musicians and excellent educators living among us. One of our brightest and most talented fixtures on the scene is not only a native son of the Mile High City of Denver but also a brilliant saxophonist and highly esteemed instructor, Keith Oxman.

Montgomery Music

An internationally recognized trumpeter, bandleader and educator, Bob Montgomery has been one of Denver’s most influential musicians of the past 40 years. Although a native son of Garden City, KS where he’s an inductee of the city’s Hall of Fame, Montgomery has been part of the Colorado jazz community since the late 1970s. Bob was mentored by trumpet legend Clark Terry when he toured Europe with CT’s Big Bad Band. Mr.


Philadelphia has produced a prodigious amount of great jazz players over the decades, one of jazz’s most fertile grounds. One can amass a spectacular all-star dream ensemble of musicians born, raised or who have resided in the City of Brotherly Love!

Walter Gorra Jazz

Throughout my fifteen year tenure as Music Director for KUVO Jazz, few of our CD of the Month selections have elicited as much joy and satisfaction as this month’s choice of the Walter Gorra Quartet’s debut, In Due Time I have had the pleasure of knowing the Gorra family since 2008, I have seen Walter mature as a brilliant jazz pianist and composer all the while he has pursued his family’s tradition of becoming a structural engineer.
