On Sunday, April 22, KUVO’s archive show “On Stage” revisits the music of our “homegirl” and newest NEA Jazz Master, Ms. Dianne Reeves.

On Sunday, April 15 at 4pm, KUVO’s archive show “On Stage” is proud to celebrate the music of Denver-based pianist Joe Bonner as we approach the 70th anniversary of his birth. (He was born April 20, 1948.)

On Stage: The Jazz Trio

Mar 28, 2018

The jazz trio is one of the easiest combos to arrange, and everybody gets to solo! On Sunday, April 8 at 4pm, KUVO’s archive show “On Stage” takes a loving listen to jazz trios who have played recently on KUVO Jazz.

2017 was a good year for trios. A quick review: The Ben Markley Trio, the Ellyn Rucker Trio, the Katie Thiroux Trio, the Mayhem Trio. And those trios represent a wide spectrum of jazz. Just three players are enough to stablish your sound. But with accomplished musicians, the musical statement can be more than the sum of its parts.

In addition to being Jazz Appreciation Month, April is also National Poetry Month. On Sunday, April 1 at 4pm, “On Stage” marks that eternally cool mash-up of artistic expression with a few jazz poetry sessions captured at KUVO with Lou Malandra!
