Jazz Greats Tuesdays on WFCF

"Jazz Greats" every Tuesday from 3-7pm Eastern on WFCF 88Five St. Augustine! From seriously ancient to just-released, from the obscure & forgotten to household names - but always tasty! There's a slight emphasis on 60's & 70's jazz (always a track from CTI) with a few tablespoons of fun & local flavor thrown in. Click here to listen online!

Also check out Palm Coast Jazz, a podcast I co-host filled with splendid original jazz from Florida musicians! My syndicated show "Kendo's Jazz Sampler" is on hiatus since I've become jazz director at WFCF.

Song titles with an asterisk are "currents" at the time of airplay.

Playlist for 3-26-2013 WFCF - Jazz Greats Grant Green Show!


I've really been looking forward to this! An all Grant Green show that covers most of his solo career - with selections from 15 of his albums. (There's a picture of all the albums we'll delve into over on the Facebook page.) We heard early hard-bop efforts all the way through to the deep funk tracks. Sidemen like Larry Young, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Yusef Lateef, Art Blakey, Jack McDuff, Ike Quebec, Elvin Jones, Idris Muhammed and James Spaulding kept things interesting. Hope you had fun, I was having a grand ol' time in the control booth with that sweet playback system! Thanks for checking in! - DJ Kendo
