Jazz on the Tube needs you

"Back to School" fundraiser

Between our collection of 2000+ annotated videos, our podcast series (see home page for details) and our global directories of clubs, festivals and schools, Jazz on the Tube is "school" for hundreds of thousands of jazz fans worldwide.

This labor of love costs real money, about $1,500 a month in out-of-pocket expenses...

And that doesn't count the time put into sourcing videos, writing them up, creating the podcasts, and maintaining the world's biggest and most accurate database of jazz festivals, jazz clubs, jazz radio and jazz education on the Internet.

This "Back to School" season please consider becoming a Friend of Jazz on the Tube.

Support Jazz on the Tube

Thanks for all your support in all the forms it takes!

Ken, Lester, Sam and all the volunteers

About This Site

Before the advent of the Internet and online video the only reliable way to SEE jazz was to go to a live show.

This is still the best way to see the music, but if you want to see the many great musicians who are no longer with us (and the living ones who aren't playing tonight in your town), we've created Jazz on the Tube as the Internet's search engine for jazz videos.

You can find videos two ways: 1) use the directory or 2) use the site's search engine.

If you like what we're doing, please help spread the word and if you have suggestions for videos we've missed, please let us know.

Where did jazz come from?

That's a very good question.

Here's what we know for sure:

* We know that the music we call "jazz" started in the Western Hemisphere.

* We know that it first reached critical mass in New Orleans

* We know that the founders were of all races, but that the key innovators were African-Americans

What we don't know is what early jazz sounded like.
