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 3-10-2020 WFCF - 1964!

1964 Sinclair Gas Station

This week we explored jazz recorded in the year 1964; when the average income was about $6,000, gasoline was 25¢ a gallon, bread was about 21¢ a loaf and a postage stamp cost 5¢! Everyone was alive and active; some soldiering on, some in transition, some stretching their boundaries... Miles, Coltrane, Jackie McLean, George Benson, Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Grant Green & more. In the mix was some of the best and more progressive cuts from the new jazz shelf. Thanks to all who tuned in and thanks to you for stopping by!
