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.

The year's well underway and cruising at full speed again! No theme for today's show, but it is split in half. The first two hours contain older material, more traditional stuff like Dizzy, Wes and a few discs I picked up over the holidays. The last two hours contain newer, spacier stuff to go with where my musical mind's been at, lately; like NEXT Collective, 1969 Miles and Brad Upton. New jazz releases will tie it all together. Tune in Tuesday 1/20 from 3-7pm on 88.5FM in the WFCF listening area, or listen online here. See you then! - Kendo

The "Ride Home" (at 5pm est) will be a lengthy cut from Pat Metheny Group, and the show will end with another beefy track from John Coltrane.  Tune in online here, on Tuesday 1/6/15 from 3-7pm eastern.
