Among Metro Denver’s pre-eminent jazz families is certainly the Fuller Family of Aurora, Colo.  The patriarch, bassist Fred Fuller and noted saxophonist, daughter Tia Fuller visited KUVO on the occasion of the family band getting back together for Papa Fuller’s 70th birthday.

Violinist Jerry Goodman made a name for himself with the Mahavishnu Orchestra laying down searing solos in the midst of that band’s blistering intensity. Goodman’s 1985 album, “On the Future of Aviation” is in marked contrast to those earlier days. This album was released on the Private Music label which was devoted to acoustic and electric instrumental music as envisioned by the artists without interference for marketing considerations. “On the Future of Aviation” is subtle, yet complex; intricate yet understated.

Tune in on Monday night, December 25 at 8pm to “Wulfie’s Wax Museum,” as we listen to Side 1 of Pat Metheny Group’s “American Garage.” Recorded and released in 1979 on the ECM Records label, this LP was Metheny’s 5th recording as a leader, and reached #1 on Billboard’s Best Jazz Album Chart in 1980. The Group also features Mark Egan on bass, Dan Gottlieb on drums, and long-time collaborator, Lyle Mays playing the Oberheim synthesizer. Join Michael Wulfsohn on the Night Beat at 8pm on KUVO Jazz.

Dazzle at Baur's

It’s appropriate that the major event during the musical week that includes Christmas is a family reunion. On Wednesday, the incredibly talented Fuller family gathers at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis, to celebrate bassist Fred Fuller’s 70th birthday at 6 and 8:30 p.m. (303-839-5100). Think about this: the bassist’s daughter Tia Fuller is among the fastest rising stars in jazz, while another daughter, Shamie Fuller-Royston, is a fine pianist and superb composer who has several discs under her belt.

It’s that time of year when you are heading out to a variety of Holiday parties. And whether you are going to a work, family, or friend’s party, you might at times get stumped as to what to bring. You wonder what people will like, what they are craving, or what can you bring that will make the best impression.

Given the recent wrangling and consternation over the 2016 Presidential Election, I decided to go back and review just who scholars and historians consider to be the top 10 of our 45 U.S. Presidents. After looking at the list, I found Andrew Jackson ranked 9th highest among our past presidents. I decided to read about Jackson, since his name came up so often during the political debates surrounding the last election.
