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.

Early 60s recording session, L-R Joe Benjamin, Joe Morello, Gary Burton, Hank Garland

This week we had a different theme each hour! Hour One was choice tracks from the year 1963 with both favorites and tracks new to the show. Hour Two was devoted to the new jazz shelf with superior cuts from the likes of Kat Gang, James Francies and Thomas Marriott. Hour Three was made up from requests made on the Facebook page and was lots of fun. Hour Four featured alternative versions of famous jazz recordings by Miles, Coltrane, Monk and more! Thanks for joining me and Happy Thanksgiving!
