So I decided to do a video series (everyone's doing it) that helps you in your pursuit of musical bliss: "Should I Listen To It"; where I give you the verdict on lesser-known albums from the 70's and 80's while I whip up something delicious in my very casual and often messy kitchen. It's all in good fun, and of course it's just my opinion! If you enjoy - sharing, liking, subscribing are all very much appreciated! Thanks for stopping by!- Kendo
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. Former host/creator of syndicated show "Kendo's Jazz Sampler".
Song titles with an asterisk are "currents" at the time of airplay.

New Video Series Reviews Lesser Known Jazz Albums from 70's and 80's
The 70's in particular were a befuddled time for jazz. Artists didn't know which way to turn to keep or secure an audience. A lot of albums were made in a lot of sub-genres by a lot of artists. For the jazz connoisseur, it can be tricky knowing which albums to avoid, and which ones are hidden gems. Record collectors can waste good money on platters they'll never spin after that first awful time. Not everyone has the free time to spend hours on Youtube listening to entire albums, trying to find the one worthwhile track tucked away between quarter hours of disco nothingness.
