Bobby Watson is one of the most accomplished saxophonists and educators of the last 40 years, rightfully so, because Bobby was born and raised in one of the most fertile and important areas for jazz in the US, Kansas City. After graduating from the University of Miami in 1975, attending at the same time as Pat Metheny and Jaco Pastorious, he relocated to NY and rapidly became the music director of the prestigious Art Blakely and the Jazz Messengers, a position he held until 1981 when he left to form his own band, Horizon.

Denver and KUVO are very proud of the accomplishments of Dianne Reeves who still calls Denver home. Moreover, the very popular and esteemed blues and jazz vocalist, the late James van Buren served as an early mentor to a young Pat Metheny, they remained close friends until the passing of JVB as he was affectionately called by his fellow Denver music peers.

Colorado’s Front Range, from Fort Collins to Colorado Spring is fortunate to have an abundance of marvelous jazz musicians and an amazing array of jazz education programs with highly qualified instructors.
