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

Copenhagen, 1968

James Moody was better known for playing the sax, but as you can see, he also could play the flute. A Georgia-born Count Basie fan from his earliest years, Moody would become very close with Dizzy Gillespie, with whom he would play bebop. Even after Gillespie passed, Moody would continue to collaborate, through decades, with the people who played with Gillespie the most.

By the late '40s, said Moody, he had become so “scarred” by racism he moved to Europe for years.
