Geoff Anderson

Host, Tuesday's Night Beat and Co-Host All Blues

Geoff Anderson has reached the 25-year mark as a KUVO/KVJZ volunteer. For almost all that time he has been on the air Tuesday evenings. Geoff started in public radio in 1976 at KCSU in Fort Collins. After taking a time out from radio to attend law school and start a legal career, Geoff dove back into jazz radio by volunteering at the then fairly new KUVO in 1988.

Geoff is a fan of many types of music and attends concerts around town on a regular basis. He writes reviews of most of the shows, many of which are posted on kuvo.org and allaboutjazz.com. Working in radio in the '70s, and being a music junkie in general during that time, resulted in an extensive record collection that he has kept intact to this day. That provides the material for Geoff's weekly feature, "The Vinyl Vault," heard every Tuesday at 8:30. Geoff picks a record from his collection that isn't in the KUVO library to share with his listeners.

Geoff occasionally fills in on All Blues, heard Saturday evenings from 5 to 7. In his spare time he is a real estate attorney at Sweetbaum, Levin & Sands, PC.

This week’s Vinyl Vault features Ben Sidran, “On the Live Side” which includes the hilarious “Good Travel Agent,” an extended riff on the three key things it takes to play jazz. Hint: the first two are a bad romance and a good travel agent. You’ll have to tune in to learn the third key ingredient.

Vinyl Vault: "Griffith Park Collection" 1982

This week’s Vinyl Vault features the “Griffith Park Collection,” a 1982 release with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White, Joe Henderson and Freddie Hubbard. A couple months ago, the Vinyl Vault featured “Echoes of an Era” which is an album by the same band but also features Chaka Kahn on vocals. Immediately after the band recorded “Echoes,” they went right back in the studio and recorded “Griffith Park.” And, like “Echoes,” this one is entirely acoustic.
