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

The Benny Goodman Orchestra featuring Gene Krupa, perform their hit "Sing, Sing, Sing" in the 1937 film "Hollywood Hotel."

“Sing, Sing, Sing (With A Swing)” was written and first recorded in 1936 by Louis Prima.

Gene Krupa became active on the Chicago scene in 1927 after gaining a couple of years experience as a drummer with bands in Wisconsin.

He made his first recordings the same year with a group led by jazzmen Eddie Condon and Red McKenzie.

Krupa joined the Benny Goodman Orchestra in 1934 and became an overnight sensation.

His drum breaks on Goodman's hit "Sing, Sing, Sing" were the first extended solos to appear on record.
