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 10-1-2013 WFCF - Jazz Greats 1961!


"1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB" - Matt Hoskins

Visit the photographer's website!


The first in a series of shows to focus on the jazz of a specific year, chronologically. This week, it was 1961! Something of a transitional time for jazz, where artists who broke new ground in 1959 or earlier, were now following these paths to new, uncertain territory. Provocative music from John Coltrane that befuddled the critics; Miles in a state of flux; Bill Evans, Scott Lofaro & Paul Motian redefining the jazz piano trio: and Cannonball enjoying stardom after the Miles sextet. Mixed in with all of this are artists oblivious to all the change; hard-boppers on the cusp of their heyday, groove jazz taking further root and "world" music about to become permanently embedded in the jazz vocabulary. Sounds serious! But we had the usual fun. Thanks for the calls, hangin' on Facebook and especially for tuning in! - Kendo

Well - it's happened. We've reached the end of summer, so this will be the last themed show for a while. But it's a good one: "The Night"! Songs about dreamy things, mysterious things, spooky things, lonely things, amazing things, lofty things, lowly things & since we are talking about music here, romantic things. If you are sad to see the themed shows leave, have no fear - next week I have something very special planned; and in October we'll embark on a new, fun way of exploring the Jazz Greats. Meanwhile - we'll celebrate the music of the nocturnal this Tuesday (9/17) from 3-7pm Eastern. Listen online anywhere in the US by clicking here. Bring a sweater and meet me then! - Kendo

Update on Go-To Album No 1 - Joe Farrell Quartet



Wounded Bird Records comes through again! After spending a few years as a major rarity on cd, often over $100 for a copy; a very fine sounding & affordable version is now available; released in mid-July of this year (without even notifying me!). If you're unfamiliar, see this post; although the year (1970) and the lineup speak volumes. Wounded Bird stick to the original tapes & again, reproduce the artwork faithfully. This is the kind of surprise I like! - Kendo
