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!


No theme this week - but I did spend a little extra time on the sets - and left a few slots open for surprises. I know a few listeners are wishing I'd play some vocal numbers, this week is their week! We'll check out the albums I snagged last week at Tone Vendor in St. Augustine, and we'll hear plenty of new jazz, too!
Tune in Tuesday 2/4/14 for commercial free music that wasn't selected by a computer. Listen for free on iHeart by clicking here. 88.5FM for locals. See you then! - Kendo
