Jazz on the Tube needs you

Our 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, and maintaining the world's biggest and most accurate database of jazz festivals, jazz clubs, jazz radio and jazz education on the Internet.

This July 4th week 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 and all the volunteers

Cannes, France, 1958

Michigan native and trumpeter Donald Byrd was one of few bebop artists who pushed soul and funk forward all without leaving his root genre of jazz. With Byrd, it's difficult to imagine how Herbie Hancock would have made his way so quickly to the top of the game.

Two years before this performance Byrd had left Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, soon performing with such luminaries as Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins.

Personnel:

Donald Byrd, trumpet
Bobby Jaspar, flute
Walter Davis, Jr., piano
Doug Watkins, bass
Art Taylor, drums
