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 1-14-2020 WFCF - 1974 and 1978!

Now I'm just seeing what I can get away with on the Book of Face haha -
although I suppose there is the remote chance that this is a man's
torso...


This week we featured music from the years 1974 and 1978; for no reason whatsoever... other than that some seriously good music happened that I wanted to get to. Hubert Laws, Woody Shaw, Chet Baker, George Coleman, Hampton Hawes, Jack DeJohnette, Art Farmer and Jim Hall and a lot more all put in some very fine sounds in those years. About 1/3 of the selections were "CTI Moments" so they are not noted below. A few new jazz releases also in the mix including Harry Connick Jr and Bill Cunliffe. Thanks to all who joined me and thank you for stopping by! - Kendo
