Spring Trivia!

Apr 21, 2014

The weekend weather in Denver inspired today's Jazz Appreciation Month trivia question.

Name a jazz song about "spring". It could be in the title, tune could be about a spring month, could have a composer with a spring-ish name. Be creative! Convince us! I wonder how many we can think of?

Monday special - ALL entries are eligible to win a CD from KUVO. Post your response below or on our Facebook page before 11:59pm on 4/21/14.

Happy Birthday, Tito!

Apr 20, 2014

Celebrating the late Tito Puente's birthday gives us a chance to revel in his mid-1950s RCA years. Backed by major label money, the King of Latin Music was able to realize the sounds he heard in his head on bandstands and in recording studios.
