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 4-6-2021 WFCF - Blue Haze

Music from a major crossroads in Miles' life.

On this show we had an in-depth look at the album Blue Haze, listening to and discussing Miles' decline and rise surrounding the time periods of the two sessions that make up the album. We also listened to what other jazz musicians were up to around the same time period, and kept things fresh with selections from the new jazz shelf. The last hour was dominated by soul jazz as we explored releases from Herbie Mann and J & K. Thanks for stopping by! - Kendo
