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 .

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.

This week the Vinyl Vault goes back to 1971 for the first Bonnie Raitt album, titled "Bonnie Raitt." Raitt’s roots are evident with covers of classic blues tunes and help on the album by blues greats Junior Wells and AC Reed. The Vinyl Vault, tonight at 8:30 on KUVO/KVJZ.

Tonight at 8:30 on KUVO/KVJZ - Geoff Anderson hosts The Vinyl Vault!

This week's Vinyl Vault selection is from Paul McCandless, woodwind player for the band Oregon. In 1979, McCandless got together with pianist Art Lande and vibes/marimba man Dave Samuels (among others) and recorded "All the Mornings Bring." We'll check out a few tracks on the Vinyl Vault, tonight at 8:30 on KUVO/KVJZ/kuvo.org.

     The Group is back. Sort of. For virtually his entire career, Pat Metheny has bounced back and forth between the highly successful Pat Metheny Group and a wide array of projects under his own name. Ever since the Group’s eponymous 1978 release, the personnel in the Pat Metheny Group constantly evolved. Besides Metheny, however, one player remained constant: keyboard player Lyle Mays; i.e.: no Mays, no PMG. The last Pat Metheny Group album was The Way Up from 2005. Mays and Metheny haven’t recorded together since.
