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 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!
