KUVO hosts presented their picks for “100 (More) Great Performances" on Thursday, June 15. Compiled by KUVO hosts, it’s a playlist of exceptional jazz – must hear songs. We’re digging deeper and filling in the blanks, to present the most unforgettable, “desert-island,” can’t-do-without, slam-dunk super songs in jazz!  Tune in all day –  for the best music on the planet, on KUVO!

It's a follow up to last year’s most notable jazz classics, 2016 "100" Great Jazz Recordings.

It’s not a ranking, but in our humble opinion, these are some of the best performances ever.  The songs are listed here alphabetically, but we’ll be playing them back in a more random order. You'll be glad you tuned in!
