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 1-21-2014 WFCF - Red Jackets Only!


"Untitled" - Evalina Oliveira
painting
Visit the artist's website!

Red Jackets Only show! Only cds/albums with red as the featured (or only) color on the cover get played! The idea for this themed show came from listening to Brad Upton's "Lionheart" album, the artwork thereof being quite red. As always - the theme caused me to examine albums that otherwise don't get much of my attention for whatever reason. I enjoy that, and it adds variety to the broadcast. After finishing the playlist, I discovered a whole bunch more albums with very red artwork, so there will most certainly be a 2nd edition. Meanwhile - enjoy the redness! Listen live Tuesday January 21st from 3-7pm EST on 88.5FM WFCF if you are in the listening area, or online via iHeart by clicking here. See you then - Kendo
