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 9-29-2020 WFCF - Gabor Szabo and Miles '68!

 For today's show we are listening to Miles Davis compositions from the 1968 time period which are unique and often intricate (and  highlighted by some astonishing drumming from Tony Williams) and a style he would quickly abandon. Also we'll be featuring guitarist Gabor Szabo's pre CTI solo career, some Hampton Hawes, Hal McKusick, more and plenty of music from the new jazz shelf including the new Thelonious Monk.
