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

Woody Shaw was a North Carolina native blessed with perfect pitch and a photographic memory, considered one of the most innovative trumpet players and jazz band leaders of his generation.

In his teenage years Shaw played night clubs, weddings and social events sitting in with many musicians including Lou Donaldson, Hank Mobley and Kenny Dorham.

His record debut was on Eric Dolphy's "Iron Man" in 1963, after which at 19 he relocated to Paris to work with the band. Following Dolphy's passing in 1964, Woody remained almost two years playing with many other's including Johnny Griffin and Dexter Gordon.
