Geoff Anderson

Host, Tuesday's Night Beat and Substitute Host, All Blues

Geoff Anderson has been a KUVO volunteer for more than 25 years. For almost all that time, he has been on the air Tuesday evenings as the host of The Night Beat with Geoff Anderson. Geoff also regularly fills in as the host for All Blues.

Geoff started in public radio in 1976 at KCSU in Fort Collins. After taking a break from radio to attend law school and start a legal career, Geoff dove back into jazz radio by volunteering at KUVO in 1988 as the station was just starting out.

Geoff is a fan of many types of music and attends concerts around town on a regular basis. He show reviews appear on KUVO's website as well as All About Jazz. Being a music junkie and working in radio during the '70s resulted in Geoff amassing an extensive record collection that he has kept intact to this day.

During his weekly feature, "The Vinyl Vault," on-air every Tuesday at 8:30 PM, Geoff shares a record from his collection that isn't in the KUVO library.

In his spare time, Geoff is a real estate attorney at Sweetbaum, Levin & Sands, PC .

Red Rocks, Denver, CO - July 25, 2014

This week’s Vinyl Vault will feature Miles Davis alum and saxman Sam Morrison with his 1978 album on Inner City Records, “Dune.” Morrison is joined by Michael Wolf, Buster Williams, Bill O’Connell and Ryo Kawasaki.

This week the Vinyl Vault will feature a 1989 album from Jean Luc Ponty titled “Storytelling.” After a string of successful albums on the Atlantic label in which Ponty explored jazz fusion and beyond, he switched to the Columbia record label and this album was his second for that imprint.

This week on the Vinyl Vault we’ll hear some world music from the band Do’a. The Vault will feature tunes from Do’a’s first and third albums, 1978’s “Light Upon Light” and 1981’s “Ancient Future” both on the Vermont label “Philo.”

Do’a was the brainchild of guitarist Randy Armstrong and flute player Ken LaRoche although their instrumentation goes far beyond those two instruments to include sitar, tabla, recorder, African cowbells, Cameroonian shakers, Mandile wood drums, kalimba, Indian bansri flute, roto-toms, Japanese biwa, Tibetan ting-shaw and many more.

This week on the Vinyl Vault, we’ll hear the 1982 album “Echoes of an Era.” The album features a lineup of first class players including Chick Corea, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White. And on vocals…Chaka Khan in her first foray into jazz.
