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

"You can dance to MY music"



Don Cherry, trumpet
Herbie Hancock, piano

Recorded in New Orleans

Donald Eugene Cherry (Don Cherry)was born November 18, 1936 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. His shining light in human form extinguished October 19, 1995.

His dad, also a trumpet player, owned a place called the Cherry Blossom Club where young Cherry saw greats like Charlie Christian and Fletcher Henderson perform.

In 1940, the family moved to the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles where his father tended bar at the Plantation Club on Central Avenue, a major jazz hub.

There's much more to the story and we'll be telling in on other pages, but this is a case where the music tells it all.

Please share your favorite JazzontheTube.com videos with your friends and colleagues

That's how we grow.
