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.

This week we're gonna have a listen to a few tracks from a 'guilty pleasure' album: Walter Murphy's (yes, that Walter Murphy) "Rhapsody in Blue". I still have my original copy, but picked up a fresh one with some birthday moolah. Other name-day selections include Gabor Szabo's "Spellbinder" (killer!), "The Great Kai & J.J.", "Prelude" by Jack McDuff, and the "Brothers" release on Prestige, pictured below. This year's haul is just plain obscene, and it'll take a few weeks to get through. Plenty of slots for new jazz! Oh yeah, I got a brand new vinyl copy of "Something You Got" from Art Farmer. Sounds amazing! We'll spin that too! For all this and more tune in online by clicking here on Tuesday, May 20th, between 3-7pm eastern.  See you then - Kendo
