Highnote Records

Houston Person is in his mid-80s, despite recording nearly 80 albums as a leader, he is still playing at a mercurial level of excellence. He is one of the last standing saxophonists that serve as a link between the pioneers and vintage players that were Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Lester Young et al and the contemporary players from the John Coltrane school.  Mr. Person brings his signature big, fat tenor sound to his latest project, Rain or Shine for the HighNote label, his home since its inception in the early 1990s.

Peter Sommer

Our November CD of the Month selection is by one of the Front Range’s most formidable aggregations led by educator and superb saxophonist Peter Sommer. For us in Colorado the title of the album, Happy-Go-Lucky-Locals rings true as the Peter Sommer Septet are a local ensemble featuring seven of our best players.

SWR Music

August is a special month for KUVO Jazz as every August 29 we celebrate another anniversary, this year we will toast to our 32nd year of providing jazz to Denver, the Front Range and beyond. In honor of this special occasion, we have selected a superb recording as our monthly spotlight. It’s the swinging SWR Big Band from Stuggart, Germany that has amazed audiences since its founding in 1951. Over the decades, the SWR has collaborated with some of the finest names in jazz, Miles Davis, Frank Foster, Chick Corea, Arturo Sandoval, Roy Hargrove and dozens more.
