Salsa Con Jazz

Salsa Con Jazz has been part of KUVO for its entire history, but under different program names.  The show has always provided salsa, mambo and cha cha dancers, as well as Latin Jazz aficionados, a unique program for Colorado and the nation. Jimmy Trujillo plays the best Latin jazz, mambo and salsa, old and new, from Machito to Tito Puente, from Eddie Palmieri to Fania All-Stars, from Los Van Van to Gilberto Santa Rosa.

The Night Beat with Jimmy Trujillo

Monday evenings are laid back, with bluesy jazz that leans toward the attitude of the 70's, when you could find almost any artist stretching their boundaries.
