Jazz on Film: The original jazz party

Jul 17, 2015

In 1954, wealthy socialite Elaine Lorillard had an idea for the “First Annual American Jazz Festival” to be put on over the Fourth of July weekend in the very upscale beach community of Newport, Rhode Island. She enlisted George Wein to produce it and with a few hiccups over the years it has been going strong ever since. Curiously, it is only the second oldest Jazz Festival. That honor goes to the Australian Jazz Convention in New South Wales that has run continuously since 1946. 

Art Scene: Crossing cultures in Denver

Jul 17, 2015

KUVO's visual arts consultant Hilary DePolo booked the guest on her monthly feature "Art Scene"  far in advance of this week's nuclear weapons treaty announcement with Iran.  Her guest, Eric Dallimore of Leon Gallery (1112 E 17th Ave., Uptown) is opening an exhibit of Iranian-American artists called Continental Divide: East of L.A./West of Tehran.

Visual arts are a great tool to foster the idea of individuality, "no matter what color they are, or what their garb is," said DePolo.  

In celebration of bringing jazz to Denver for 30 years, KUVO is teaming up with the Blair-Caldwell Library to create an exhibit sure to take jazz lovers down a musical memory lane!

Since its very first record dropped on August 29, 1985, KUVO 89.3 Jazz FM has proudly been offering a mix of jazz, Latino and blues. Located in a studio in Denver’s historic Five Points neighborhood, KUVO has established a go-to hub for musicians from around the world.
