Playlist for 3-24-2020 Home - First Home Edition of Jazz Greats!


Superb Timmons from 1964.



Well, I'm glad I got last week's show in before the station closed for the safety of the dj's! This week and the for time being, the show will be recorded at home, to maintain a sense of regularity for both the listeners and myself. This week it's jazz selected to help us stay calm amidst all the horrible news we're hearing and seeing, simple as that. Stay safe, stay home, and enjoy the show in the player above! Much love - Kendo

"Sax Solo" - Stefanos Aslanis

This show is all about Selmers and Yamahas, Bueschers and Kings, and the guys & gals who make 'em sound great! There's also a pianist or two, a singer here or there, even some brass. Not all saxy, just very. Lots of new albums got added to my library, many thanks to former Jazz Greats host and show originator Mariann! At the end of the show we'll hear another lengthy odyssey, this time from Wynton Kelly and Hank Mobley you won't want to miss. Tune in for another swingin' show, broadcast live on Tuesday March 11th from 3-7pm eastern. Stop by the show's Facebook page & say howdy and to see my ridiculous poster for this episode.

Playlist for 10-1-2013 WFCF - Jazz Greats 1961!


"1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB" - Matt Hoskins

Visit the photographer's website!


The first in a series of shows to focus on the jazz of a specific year, chronologically. This week, it was 1961! Something of a transitional time for jazz, where artists who broke new ground in 1959 or earlier, were now following these paths to new, uncertain territory. Provocative music from John Coltrane that befuddled the critics; Miles in a state of flux; Bill Evans, Scott Lofaro & Paul Motian redefining the jazz piano trio: and Cannonball enjoying stardom after the Miles sextet. Mixed in with all of this are artists oblivious to all the change; hard-boppers on the cusp of their heyday, groove jazz taking further root and "world" music about to become permanently embedded in the jazz vocabulary. Sounds serious! But we had the usual fun. Thanks for the calls, hangin' on Facebook and especially for tuning in! - Kendo
