Jazz in the Key of "Wonder" | Sep 16

Sep 15, 2017

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the 7 Grammy nominations and four wins for the Stevie Wonder album called his best work and one of the greatest of all time, “Songs in the Key of Life.” The music from that album accompanied by other musical treats anchor our special session, “Jazz in the Key of Wonder” to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the GrooveJazz Rendezvous on KUVO, Saturday September 16 at 8:00pm.

This Sunday, September 17, 2017, at 4pm, KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” features the music of Lew Soloff, recorded at Denver’s El Chapultepec.

KUVO was just six years old when this session was recorded on October 3, 1991 at El Chapultepec.  Carlos Lando hosted the broadcast and Freddie Rodriguez, Sr. emceed the stage.  It was a hot night on the corner of 20th and Market Street in Denver (long before the ballpark was in place).

Lew’s quartet on this date featured the cream of Denver jazz talent: Billy Wallace on piano, Ken Walker on bass, and Nat Yarbrough on drums.
