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.

Dave Mason at the Soiled Dove Underground

Dave Mason at the Soiled Dove Underground, Denver, April 22, 2014

   Billed as “Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam,” Mason’s current tour is keeping the music of Traffic alive and well. Mason only stuck around for the first two Traffic albums, but he wrote some key songs and, besides, there’s only one other member of Traffic left; Steve Winwood. And certainly Winwood had a much bigger influence on Traffic than Mason did. But Traffic was one of the greatest rock bands of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, so maintaining that legacy is unquestionably a worthy venture.

Jazz @ Jack’s, Denver

   Astaire and Rogers; Bogart and Bacall; Sponge Bob and Patrick…The entertainment world is full of classic pairings. Wednesday night’s classic pairing was jazz and craft beer. Dropped in the middle of the 2014 Craft Brewers Conference in Denver, pianist Helen Sung, affiliated with North Coast Brewing Company, put together a virtuoso quintet to match the virtuoso beer on tap.

St. Vincent, March 29, 2014, Ogden Theatre, Denver

Some key facts about St. Vincent:

1. St. Vincent is female.

2. Her real name is Annie Clark.

3. She’s a pretty flipped out chick.

4. But in a good way.

In her concert appearance Saturday night, she displayed a wide array of rock styles, focusing mostly on the “Art Rock” or “Progressive Rock” genres. She follows in the path of prior purveyors of this sort of music/performance, Laurie Anderson, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel and others. Yet she borrowed from other styles as well.

Matrix - Fusion in 1981

This week’s Vinyl Vault features the album “Harvest” from the band Matrix. This 1981 album features plenty of brass on top of a fusion-oriented rhythm section. It was a rare, but tasty departure for the usually straight ahead oriented Pablo Today record label. Dig the Vinyl Vault tonight at 8:30 on KUVO/KVJZ.
