DENVER -- If you ask 10 people to define jazz, you'll get 10 different answers. And they're all probably right. One thing about jazz, it's uniquely American.

KUVO Jazz radio station in Denver is as unique as the music it plays.

It's one of only a handful of jazz stations in the country.

"Stations that don't care or are owned from the corporate side, they all get swallowed up and they all regurgitate the same content or programming, as we call it in the business," said morning show host and general manager Carlos Lando.

KUVO started jazzing up Denver at 89.3 FM in 1985 from a small, humble little building in southwest Denver.

It was recently voted the best jazz stationĀ in the world by the Daily Mail in London.

Lando has been with KUVO since the start. You won't hear any commercials on KUVO, so pledge drives are a necessity.

If names like Brubeck, Davis, Monk and Fitzgerald get your toes tappin', there's only one place in Denver to get your jazz on.
