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.

visit the artist's website!


This week's show pays tribute to over a dozen jazz musicians who left us in 2013. The intention is not to mourn, but to celebrate the gifts of beauty they provided us with. Also today is the Virgin Sacrifice - we play an unopened copy of Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite and play a whole side at 5:15. Sprinkle in some new jazz releases and a Christmas favorite! Also be sure to visit this month's artist at her website - beautiful visuals! Tune in from 3-7pm at 88.5FM or listen anywhere in the US via iHeart for free! Leave comments about the artists featured today at either Facebook or Twitter. See you then! - Kendo
