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.

Extra shows this month!

Ron Carter - photo by Takehiko Tokiwa

Summertime means vacation for a few of the other jazz jocks at WFCF. Since I happen to think FL is already a paradise, the ideal getaway for me is more time on the air sharing awesome jazz! This month I'll be doing 2 extra shows; a Thursday and a Monday.

Thursday August 15th: a four-hour program from 3-7 that will feature some of the best jazz I've heard this summer, that didn't fit into any of the themed shows. Artists like Bill Frissell, Miroslav Vitous, Ron Carter, Rob Denty, Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band and the T.S. Monk album I'm enjoying as I type! We'll also set aside at least one hour for all the excellent new jazz that's come into the station.

Monday August 19th: a two-hour program from 3-5. Not sure what I'll play yet, but I'm thinking about featuring the transitional collection "Blue Haze" by Miles Davis, featuring pre & post addiction sessions.

Tuesday shows will remain intact (3-7pm) and continue to be themed for the duration of summer. Upcoming themes: Night, Time, Dreams, Streetlife, Far Away Places, and Trains! Join me for any or all and tell some jazz friends where the "Jazz Greats" are at! Listen online by clicking here. See you then! - Kendo
