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 4-1-2014 WFCF - April Fools!


"Mud bug Funk" - CBSites

As if we need an excuse for jazz shenanigans...this week's show falls on April Fool's day so... instant theme show! Song's about fools, folly, jokes, pranks, idiots as well as a few songs that are jokes themselves. New jazz mixed in as well as a good number of tracks that have nothing to do with foolishness. Albums new to the show include "Count Basie at Newport", "Chet Baker Sings" and Christian McBride's "Number Two Express" and a superb 2006 effort from Mark Egan called "As We Speak". Fun and games begin Tuesday 4/1 from 3 til 7pm eastern. See you then! - Kendo
