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.

"Jazz" - Marcelo Bittencourt

Happy Spring, everybody! For this week's show, diversification was an inspiration - playing artists or albums that haven't appeared on the show, before. Also, an initial goal for doing the dj thing was/is to bring back into focus recent albums that get lost or forgotten, because of the ever-flowing influx (in vast amounts) of new music. So today we'll hear some quality tracks from last year; namely Michael Blanco, Barbara Morrison, Mark Gross and Brad Mehldau. At 5:30 we bring back the "Virgin Sacrifice" - with an unopened vinyl copy of "Moon Rappin'" by Jack McDuff (courtesy of Jim Driscoll). And to top it off, folks who tune in or stay tuned til the end will hear the "Jazz Odyssey" track - this week it's a slayer from Chuck Mangione Quartet (1972). Thanks for listening! - DJ Kendo
