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 2014 4 29 WFCF - Jazz Greats!


"Road Less Traveled" - Kenneth Frizzell
acrylic on canvas
Visit the artist's website!


The name of the splendid work of art above is sort of what I was going for this week in selecting music; with material either by cats I don't ordinarily play, or from albums I've forgotten about lately, like the Stryker/Slagle band, Howard Rumsey, Moutin Brothers, and a fine disc by John Patitucci! It's also the last Tuesday of the month, so it's time to sacrifice another virgin! I've been a good boy, not opening a new viny copy of "Shades of Green" by Grant Green the last few weeks... so we can enjoy the experience together. We'll hear all of side one! Lots of new jazz, and some classics as well. Stay til the end and hear a phenomenal cut from Art Blakey featuring Chuck Mangione & Keith Jarrett. Tune in live at 88.5 FM if you're in the listening area; or listen online for free by clicking here. That's Tuesday 4/29 from 3-7pm eastern. See you then! - Kendo
