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.

Thanks for all your support in all the forms it takes!

Copenhagen, 1967

Duke Ellington composed “Sophisticated Lady” in 1932. Ellington based the song on memories of his Washington, D.C. grade school teachers who, in his words, “taught all winter and toured Europe in the summer.” Perhaps it makes enough sense that, after the first 20-some years of his life, Ellington make a habit of living out of suitcases in every corner of Europe.

Personnel:

Duke Ellington, piano
Harry Carney, sax
John Lamb, bass
Rufus Jones, drums
