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

Ella Fitzgerald & the Tee Carson trio - Summertime (from Porgy and Bess, by George Gershwin).
The first lady of song in Berlin, 1968.
Beautiful mother singing a lullaby to her baby.

Summertime lyrics
Songwriters: George & Ira Gershwin, Du Bose & Dorothy Heyward

Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Oh, Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry

One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky

But 'til that morning
There's a'nothing can harm you
With your daddy and mammy
Standing by
Don't you cry
