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

Cedar Anthony Walton, Jr
January 17, 1934 August 19, 2013


At the San Javier Jazz Festival 2010

Bobby Hutcherson, vibes
Cedar Walton, piano
David Williams, bass
Eddie Marshall, drums

One of the great hard bop pianists, he made his first mark as a pianist and arranger with Art Blakey in the 1960s.

Several of his tunes have become standards: "Firm Roots", "Bolivia" and "Cedar's Blues"

How many albums did he appear on as a leaders and sideman? I don't know. I can't count that high.

Who wanted him as a sideman?

Just Gene Ammons, Sonny Stitt, Donald Byrd, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane (Giant Steps), Sonny Criss, Kenny Dorham, Art Farmer, Benny Golson, Cannonball Adderley, Dexter Gordon, Jimmy Heath, Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, Milt Jackson, Clifford Jordan, Lee Morgan, Houston Person, Abbey Lincoln, and Stanley Turrentine,

And that's the SHORT list and only includes the collaborations that ended up on disc.

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

That's how we grow.
