Jazz on the Tube needs you

"Back to School" fundraiser

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

Rotterdam, Netherlands, 1974


Composed by Thelonious Monk and first recorded in 1951, jazz standard “Straight, No Chaser” is maybe the most covered of the pianist's songs. Other artists who have done covers include Oliver Nelson, Bud Powell, Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett.

Julian “Cannonball” Adderley is perhaps most famous for his '60s single “Mercy Mercy Mercy” – and for his work with Miles Davis. His brother, cornet player Nat Adderley, also plays in this performance.
