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.

Kendo's MP3 Deal of the Week:
Hampton Hawes "All Night Sessions 1"
5 cuts for under 5 bucks and free to stream if you're already a prime member. Hampton in his hard bop prime with Jim Hall's guitar evening the keel. Solid.

Kendo's MP3 Deal of the Week II:
Junior Cook - "Something's Cooking"
None of the cds aired this week had an extraordinary deal, so here's an even better mp3 deal - this contains two albums and 12 tracks and about 70 minutes of high quality jazz at a nice price. "Good Cookin'" has Slide Hampton arrangements (and on trombone) and the great Bill Hardman on trumpet! "Somethin's Cookin'" features Cedar Walton on piano, a great version of Cedar's "Fiesta Espanol", Buster Williams on bass and a very enthused Junior on sax - my favorite cut is the lengthy track I played tonight "Illusion of Grandeur".
