Ed Danielson

Host, Jazz with Ed Danielson

Ed Danielson, host of Jazz with Ed Danielson, has been with KUVO for more than 20 years.

Ed was previously the host of Morning Beat, and he's also worked the Saturday morning and Monday evening shifts at KUVO.

Many years ago, Ed played jazz records on a long-gone Denver radio station and was station manager of his college radio station back in the 1960s.

“For some inexplicable reason, when I was a little kid, my straight-laced Swedish Baptist grandmother had an old '78 of ‘Royal Garden Blues’ by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, and I’ve been a jazz fan ever since I heard that,” Ed said.

The jazz documentary about trumpeter Clark Terry and his piano protege Justin Kauflin has been getting rave reviews at film and music festivals in Colorado (Boulder this spring and the Vail Jazz Party) and around the nation.  "Keep On Keepin' On" is featured as the Red Carpet Matinee this Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 2:00 p.m.  as part of the Starz Denver International Film Festival.  Kauflin will perform live after the screening at Buell Theatre.
