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.

Brief Review - Jack Mouse!

Jack Mouse Group - "Range of Motion"  4.25 out of 5.00

Three cheers for a gleeful spirit of adventure, clever invention and savvy know-how. Every track is good, but the album really starts to take off from #5 on. Plenty of variety, off-kilter tributes and daring; particularly from leader Jack Mouse (drums) and guitarist John McLean. The band moves and navigates together like a pampered Ferrari in the lead. Horn man Scott Robinson also stands out. Highlights from the all-original fare are "Raucous Caucus", "The Breezeling", "Mean Streak" and the neato duo closer with Robinson "Loose Weave".
