Vinyl Vault

This week’s Vinyl Vault will feature a 1987 album from the Oscar Peterson Four entitled, “If You Could See Me Now.” Recorded in 1983 and released four years later, the album features Joe Pass on guitar, Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Martin Drew on drums. The quartet sweetly swings its way through Miles Davis’ “Weird Blues” as well as some Peterson originals and some standards like “Limehouse Blues” and “If I Should Lose You.” Join Geoff Anderson for the Vinyl Vault, this Tuesday at 8:30 on KUVO Jazz.

This week, the fundraiser edition of the Vinyl Vault will feature the 1978 album from Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson, “Secrets.” The album features all the sophisticated grooves and insightful social commentary Scott-Heron was well known for. Tracks like “Angel Dust,” “Madison Avenue” and “Better Days Ahead” are as relevant now as they were 40 years ago.

Join Geoff Anderson on the Vinyl Vault, Tuesday, May 1 at 8:30 on KUVO Jazz.

This week, the Vinyl Vault gets deep into the blues with a 1970 album from British blues band Savoy Brown entitled “Raw Sienna.” The album was the last Savoy Brown album to feature lead vocalist Chris Yolden, who left the band shortly after this album was recorded. “Raw Sienna” saw Savoy Brown incorporating jazz elements into their sound, but still retaining a solid blues foundation. Join Geoff Anderson and check out “Raw Sienna” Tuesday, April 24 at 8:30 on KUVO Jazz.

Vinyl Vault: The Dixie Dregs

Apr 7, 2018

The Dixie Dregs are back together and touring again. The band’s heyday was in the late 70s and early 80s when they honed a unique jazz-rock sound with a little bit of country and classical and a dose of humor thrown in. The band was known for its pyrotechnic live shows and virtuosic musicianship. The current tour, with the original line-up lands in Boulder this weekend for shows this Friday and Saturday nights. And, because the Vinyl Vault sports several Dixie Dregs albums, we’ll hear from some of them this Tuesday.
