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

Stockholm, Sweden 1969

Astonishingly, Hendrix did not pick up a guitar until he was 15 years old.

That means his life on the guitar from first note to its end was less than 12 years. His career as a top billed soloist lasted less than five years.

Certainly no one who ever played in the rock genre could hold a candle to him.

Hendrix studied Blues avidly and his heroes were B.B. King, Albert King, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Walker, and Muddy Waters.

His favorite musician? Rahsaan Roland Kirk.

Miles Davis and John McLaughlin did studio session with him that have yet to be released.



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

That's how we grow.

Thanks!
