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

Thelonious Monk tune

Personnel:

John Coltrane, tenor sax
Stan Getz, tenor sax
Oscar Peterson, piano
Jimmy Cobb, drums

I didn't know these four had performed together.

On paper, it's sounds great. In reality, it's even greater.

What about the name "Hackensack?"

It's the name of a town and a river across the Hudson River in New Jersey, just a five minute drive (without traffic, a big "If") from Manhattan.

Hackensack was the original location of legendary recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder's first studio (his parent's home.) He later moved it to Fort Lee, NJ.

"Hackensack" was first recorded on Monk's first visit to the Hackensack studio which took place on May 11, 1954. My guess is he arrived at the studio without a tune, and without a name "presto" a title was born.
