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

It was 1971 and the year that Ben Webster would rejoin Duke Ellington for a few sessions. In his earlier years, when he first joined Ellington's orchestra, Webster could already count legendary Ellington soloist Johnny Hodges as one of his chief influences.

Charlie Shavers was a trumper who would become famous jamming with Billie Holiday, Ellington and Roy Eldridge.

Personnel:

Ben Webster, tenor sax
Charlie Shavers, trumpet
Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen, bass
Niels Jurgen Steen, piano
Finn Ziegler, violin
