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. Former host/creator of syndicated show "Kendo's Jazz Sampler".

Song titles with an asterisk are "currents" at the time of airplay.

Playlist for 1-17-2023 WFCF - January Jazz!


This week we started in 1931 and explored all sorts of jazz recorded in January all the way through 1955 chronologically! Why? Because we had to!! Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Lester Young, Miles Davis, Shelly Manne, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Anita O'Day, Gil Melle... lots, lots more! (Don't forget to let me know somewhere whether or not you enjoyed this sort of thing...) For the final hour we relaxed a bit to soul jazz by Ronnie Foster, Lonnie Smith and Lou Donaldson. Thanks to all who tuned in! Don't forget to follow me on Mixcloud to be reminded about next week's livestream. Have a great day! - Kendo
