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.

Playlist for 5-28-2019 WFCF - Side One!




On today's show we will listen to side one from a bunch of different albums. For the first two hours we'll focus on 10" releases from the Prestige label that were created to be albums (from 1951 on) and not just re-released 78s. Artists include Miles Davis, Teddy Charles, Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins. After the Flagler Footnotes we move on to 12" releases, mostly from 1963 (no reason) from Lee Morgan and Art Farmer, and we'll close with some 1972 Grant Green! Tune in from 3-7pm eastern at 88.5FM or on iHeart by clicking here. See you then! - Kendo
