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

Missouri native Coleman Hawkins was one of the first musicians to define the tenor sax as a jazz instrument. Miles Davis credited listening to Hawkins with teaching him how to play ballads.

In New York City, in the '40s, Hawkins would begin his collaborations with pianist Thelonious Monk and drummer Max Roach. Along with Roach and trumpet giant Dizzy Gillespie, in the mid-'40s Hawkins took part in what many critics consider the first bebop recordings ever.

Personnel:

Coleman Hawkins, tenor sax
Jo Jones, drums
Harry “Sweets” Edison, trumpet
