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 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

In school, in addition to music, he played sports competitively: football, basketball and baseball to be exact.

He also played several instruments, starting out with the drums.

A football accident injured his wrist and caused him to drop the drums and switch to the bass.

He started with an upright bass, but the humidity of Florida where he grew up and his interest in R & B moved him to the electric version of the instrument.

His stated influences:

James Brown, The Beatles, Miles Davis, Stravinsky, Hendrix, Charlie Parker, Paul Chambers, Cannonball Adderley, Frank Zappa, Bob Marley.

Bass players that he influenced: Countless.
