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

"Big Chief of Congo Square"

Donald Harrison discusses his life and career focusing on what learned from early jazz greats in Chicago during 2011.

New Orleans jazz man Donald Harrison talks about his first alto saxophone punched by his father, and his big break with drummer Roy Haynes as a nineteen year old student at the Berklee College of Music leading to work with the great Art Blakey.

He explores the different treatments of the same music over time and individual styles and attitudes of the musicians that gave jazz its endless variation.

Harrison stresses the importance of studying the past for a truly greater understanding of the genre.
