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 2-18-2014 WFCF - Jazz Greats!

If you enjoy the above painting, be sure to visit the artist's site, click on her gallery, and read the story behind this painting - very intriguing, and very musical!

I've been a bit preoccupied with the shows for the following weeks. So much so, that it took me 4 days to get this playlist together! But I prevailed! Some nice variety is in store; plus we'll continue examining "Happenings" by Bobby Hutcherson, check out 2 tracks from amazing horn man & arranger Gary Wofsey (and another from his equally astonishing wife Jill on flute). I'll spin a few from Larry Coryell to get you pumped about the interview with him on the March 4th show (!!); and as always we'll delve into the new jazz shelf at WFCF til we are sated with the latest sonics. Join me Tuesday 2/18 from 3-7pm EST. Listen online for free via iHeart by clicking here, or just tune in to 88.5 if you are in the listening area (St. Augustine, Palm Coast, Flagler Beach, So. Jacksonville, Ormond Beach). See you then! - Kendo
