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 9-21-2021 WFCF - All Those Years Ago!

Bobby in a good mood. Maybe it's because he
was about to sign a 3 album deal with
Columbia ;)

This show featured a lot of wonderful music recorded on this date by Gerry Mulligan, Stan Kenton, Jimmy & Wes and Cal Tjader. We also listened to a good chunk of "Knucklebean" by Bobby Hutcherson; his last album from a rather long run at Blue Note records before a 3 year move to Columbia; and we followed Miles Davis progressively through a few of his appearances at the Newport Jazz Festival. As always, deep cuts and plenty of new jazz. Thank you for stopping by! - Kendo
