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

From film "Fabulous Dorseys," 1947

Despite being legally blind, Ohio native Art Tatum found a way to cement his role in the jazz pantheon. Despite that, as a young, his fast-paced piano playing would earn him drops-in from Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. Tatum greatly admired Earl Hines.

Unfortunately not much footage exists of Tatum playing.

Personnel:

Art Tatum, piano
Tommy Dorsey, trombone
Jimmie Dorsey, clarinet
Charlie Barnet, sax
George Van Eps, guitar
Ray Bauduc, drums
Ziggy Elman, trumpet
Stuart Foster, bass



Please share your favorite JazzontheTube.com videos with your friends and colleagues

That's how we grow.

Thanks!
