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.

This weeks show was the first of two space-themed shows for August: "Heavenly Bodies". We started off innocently enough with fun jazz about moon & stars . At 4pm the spacier jazz began as we launched out on a 2 hour voyage; starting at the Sun, then outward, visiting most of the planets in our Solar System, and then beyond! At 6pm we headed "back to earth". We delved a bit into the new jazz shelf; including "Vigil" from the spaciest of jazz trekkers, Chick Corea! Thanks for tuning in, phoning in, checking in and keeping me company! - Kendo
