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 6-4-2019 - At the Blackhawk!

The album that inspired this show - stellar!


On this show we went back 60 years to the Blackhawk nightclub in San Francisco, where Brubeck rose up to stardom and where cats from all over preferred to play when they were on the West Coast! We heard live performances at the short lived venue from Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Ahmad Jamal, Thelonious Monk & more! Thank you for tuning in! - Kendo
