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.

For this week's installation we have selections from Floridian composers/performers. As the producer of the Palm Coast Jazz podcast I've come across vast amounts of awesome music by jazz artists living down here. These three selections are some of the
Jamie Ousley
finest; go-to tracks both in my mind and for programming the radio shows. Two are fusions of world with improvisation. Jamie Ousley's "Pasaje Tennessee" is nothing short of exquisite, alternating a pensive mood with lilting Latin-American three-quarter dance; a lovely touch is the violin and mandolin work from Jhony Mendoza. After a mysterious keyboard opening, Michael Petrovich's "Sunrise in the Land of the Pharaohs" is immediately contagious and mesmerizing;  a satisfying solo displays his fine taste and skill on classical guitar. Thirdly is a compelling cut from Jeff Berlin; pretty and light melodies alternate with emotional angst, ending with a cool synth solo from Richard Drexler. All three are in my phone - hope they find their way into yours! - Kendo
