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. Former host/creator of syndicated show "Kendo's Jazz Sampler".

Song titles with an asterisk are "currents" at the time of airplay.

A neat little assembling of musicians in this photo by the great photographer William "PoPsie" Randolph of the 1950 Metronome All-Stars! Serge Chaloff - baritone sax, Kai Winding - trombone, Billy Bauer - guitar, John LaPorta - clarinet, Lee Konitz - alto sax, Stan Getz - tenor, Miles Davis - trumpet. The two sides they recorded at this session held January 23rd, 1951 (with George Shearing & Terry Gibbs not shown) are "Local 802 Blues" and "Early Spring".
