KUVO programming highlights!

Tonight on “Wulfie’s Wax Museum,” we take a listen to "Presenting Thad Jones–Mel Lewis & 'The Jazz Orchestra',” the Village Vanguard’s Monday night band’s debut studio recording, from May 1966. This LP was recorded just three months after the group’s opening night performance in February 1966. This recording is from the “Solid State” record label. The band claimed to have achieved sonic excellence by recording “exclusively with transistorized equipment on twenty-eight channels.”  Join host Michael Wulfsohn tonight, Monday, December 18 at 8pm on the "Night Beat" on KUVO Jazz.

Dec 15, 2017

This Christmas Eve Sunday, December 24, at 4 p.m., KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” features wordsmith – crooner – tunesmith Bob Dorough!

On Monday December 18th, we close out a year of jazz centenary honorees by showcasing Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson on what would have been his 100th birthday.  Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson’s Texas roots came blaring out of his saxophone in the most bluesy way.  His career went back to the 1930s, through the big bands of the 1940s, and included playing, singing, composing and leading bands.  A young John Coltrane played in his band in the early 50s.
