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!

Golden Age of TV

Ben Webster swings the Duke Ellington tune on American TV c. 1960

Personnel:

Ben Webster, tenor sax
Buck Clayton, trumpet
Vic Dickenson, trombone
Hank Jones, piano
George Duvivier, bass
Jo Jones, drums

It's a simple 12 bar blues in - you guessed it - C major

Credit for the tune went New Orleans-born clarinetist Barney Bigard and Duke Ellington. When Ellington veteran Barney Bigard moved to the Louis Armstrong band, it became a favorite of Armstrong's too.
