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.

14 Miles Davis Albums for Under $5


Muted Miles close to that mic!
So you're a little bored from all the staying at home, and impulse shopping on Amazon is a major temptation - especially if you're a music junkie. Have no fear - the daddy of music cheapness is here to help you spend less and get more.

Below we have a whole slew of Miles Davis cd's that go for cheap - and most are Prime so you can have them in your hands pretty quickly. 
I just ordered the Jack Johnson one yesterday - it'll be here tonight! Plus many of them come with "auto-rip" so I was able to listen to the album this morning while I cuddled with the dog (he liked side A). I do make a few cents on purchases from this blog post, but it does not raise the cost of the items. Fill the holes in your collection and get with some new first rate jazz! - Kendo!

ps - most of the cds below are Prime even though the icons may not list it as such.

Playlist for 4-22-2020 Home - Jazzploration

Wonderful 1979 release from George Cables!



As I mention on this week's show, the intended name for my radio program was originally "Jazzploration". To appease both the station manager and the previous host for that time slot, who had held if for something like 15 years, I was convinced to maintain her show name and it's honor: "Jazz Greats", which - not only rang somewhat pedestrian to my ears, but also countered with what I intended to do: play music by both widely known artists as well as the most obscure and forgotten.

My plan was to take the listener to another place, plain and simple; often a happy one, a good-time one, occasionally an outta-this-world one. This week's show is my current idea of what that should be like: a journey. You spend some time on the airport, you board the plane with excitement (or fear), you take off and soar above the earth, you land someplace you've never been before, you explore, you drive a little further out, explore...

Hope you like the show. Thanks for stopping by & listening!
