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

St. Louis guitarist Grant Green began performing professionally when he was twelve.

Influenced mainly by Charlie Christian, Charlie Parker, and Lester Young he made his first recordings with tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest before the 1961 release of his own debut as leader "Grant's First Stand."

Green's bluesy grove is immediately recognizable and he worked mainly with small groups including musicians McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, and Sonny Clark.

After spending much of 1978 hospitalized Grant returned to the road against medical advice.

While booked at George Benson's Breezin' Lounge in New York he collapsed in his car and died from a heart attack on January 31, 1979.
