Uh-oh... a themed show! This week's show wass brought to us by the letter "S"; that is to say; all the song titles begin with the double curve. I love these shows because songs and albums are chosen that ordinarily might get overlooked, but are worthy of our time; and it steps up the variety factor! It's the last show in the old WFCF studio!! I'm going to miss it, especially the mood lighting, but I'm looking forward to the new equipment, furniture, lobby et al and the overall sense of adventure. Thanks for tuning in/stopping by! - Kendo

  2. Steve Kuhn -  Permanent Wave*
  3. Brian Bromberg - Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?*
  4. Piero Odorici w/ Cedar Walton Trio - If I Should Love You*

The Bill Evans Trio played 5 one-hour sets that day, the last of a 2 week engagement equally billed with Lambert, Hendricks and Ross. The recordings were culled from all the sets. Ten days later Scott LaFaro crashed into a tree heading upstate NY and died instantly. The 2 selections played today were his brilliant compositions.

My next time on the air will be a classical slot on July 4th from 11am to 1pm - I'll be celebrating this awesome holiday with music by American composers - like Gottschalk, Gershwin, Grofé, Copland, Antheil, Reich, Bernstein and more!

Upcoming Air-date 6/25/12 WFCF

Jumping right in to the wild world of live broadcasting on 88Five WFCF St. Augustine - the new home for my big mouth (and more importantly - good taste!) We are an Iheart radio station so you can stream if you're not within range - which is pretty decent - from Jacksonville Beach to the edge of Ormond Beach (Korona) and west to Palatka.

I'm taking a fill-in spot on Monday June 25th from 3-5pm. If all goes well you'll hear my voice by about 3:30ish? Depends on DMC the station manager - who will get things started. Anyway below are some of the selections I expect to spin, including a celebration of the shows at the Village Vanguard which spawned 2 amazing Bill Evans albums: Waltz for Debby; and the one I'll be dropping: Sunday at the Village Vanguard - recorded exactly 51 years ago on the air-date.

We'll be hearing delicious sounds from the following albums:

Art Farmer - Something You Got
Jill Allen (Wofsey)- I'm Flying
Bill Evans - Sunday at the Village Vanguard
ZBT - Out of This Town
Miles Davis - Miles and Horns
Herb Silverstein & Friends - Beach Walker
Freddie Hubbard - First Light
Don Durkee Trio

along with selections from the new jazz bin at the station, and whatever DMC plays or wants me to play. Tune in via this Iheart link* if you like :) - DJ Kendo

*there are apps for blackberry, iphone, android etc on the WFCF homepage.
