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.

Steal Deals - Joe Farrell "Outback"!!

For a little while there, Amazon had a few choice albums in digital (mp3) format for a steal. Most of them have disappeared, but I stumbled on this one today - so I figured I'd share!

This is a FANTASTIC album by multi-reed and flute man Joe Farrell (Return to Forever, Maynard Ferguson, Fuse One) that features Chick Corea on piano/el. piano, Buster Williams on bass and Elvin Jones on drums. Yeah, wow!! It does not disappoint. At $2.99 it's an absolute steal. Enjoy!! - Kendo
