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.

Thanks for all your support in all the forms it takes!

Milt Jackson

Milton Jackson was born in Detroit on January 1, 1923. He attended Michigan State University and after began playing with local groups in the Detroit area in the early ‘40s. After moving to New York he became known as ‘The’ vibraphone player for obvious reasons. He joined Dizzy’s Orchestra in 1946 and also played with Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Tadd Dameron and of course John Lewis. MJQ the members, came together in 1951 and when Jackson signed with Prestige Records the following year, the group became known as the Modern Jazz Quartet.

Jackson performed with MJQ from the 1950s until his passing in 1999. During his career he made albums with Wes Montgormery, Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, John Coltrane and B.B. King among many others. Jackson's popularity in jazz and on the vibes remains even today and his music will continue to influence any musician that plays the vibraphone.
