On the week of December 18, yours truly, Arturo Gómez, will spotlight five influential purveyors of Latin jazz who are non-Latinos. I will play two songs by each artist selected for each day of the week through Friday, December 22. The first song by the daily artist will be aired at approximately 12:12pm, and the second one will be played around 12:54pm MT.

Monday kicks off with Jack Costanzo, on Tuesday it will be Henry "Pucho" Brown followed by Herbie Mann on Wednesday. On Thursday I will spotlight Dizzy Gillespie, and on Friday I will focus in on the most important of them all, Cal Tjader.  I hope you will be able to tune in on the air, online, or on the free KUVO app available for all mobile devices through your app store.
