Why were we "off the air" for eight hours Thursday?

We're back up and running and I wish I could tell you what happened, but I don't know. However, I do know we'll be getting a bill from my programmer for putting things right.

If anyone feels inclined to chip in and help with this extraordinary expense (about two weeks net revenue up in smoke), we'd appreciate it. Every little bit helps a lot.

New Orleans, baby


If someone told me I could only hear one sound, it would be a hard call, but definitely on my very short list would be the sound of New Orleans drummers.

I could listen to these guys all day and night long.

I love all drummers, but that street parade sound that New Orleans drummers like Ed Blackwell, Idris Muhammad, Baby Dodds, "Smokey" Johnson, and others, have in their DNA is pure magic to me.

So clean, so musical, so multi-dimensional.

They're not flash - though they have the chops to be. Instead they choose to be - and can be - deep.

I believe this was recorded in Pittsburgh at a jazz festival held there. There's no info on a date.

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

That's how we grow.
