In the Studio

Our Jazz Appreciation Month celebration continues on Sunday, April 22 at 2:15pm when we welcome the Román Díaz's Afro Cuban Group to the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio. The group performs a selection of the diverse folkloric traditions inherited in Cuba from West Africa and The Caribbean, highlighting the Bantú (Congo), Carabalí (Abakuá) and Cuban - Haitian lineages, as well as Rumba. Musicians: Roman Díaz, Rafael Monteagudo, Anier Alonso, Melvis Santa.

Sitting in the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio before a show begins is an edge-of-the-seat experience. Something is about to happen!

The cacophony of warm up scales, new phrases and favorite riffs ceases. The host calls the room and musicians to attention as the clock counts down to the appointed time.  “One minute!” the producer shouts, startling everyone except the host who is keenly aware of exactly how much time is left before introducing the performance to a vast, unseen audience - Radioland.

KUVO Jazz welcomes the Denver School of the Arts Combo, 'Impulse' to the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio on Thursday, April 5 at 3:15 to 4pm; their repertoire includes all Charles Mingus tunes.
