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

December 8, 1925 - February 8, 2005


The Jimmy Smith Quartet featured in a 1988 concert at ZDF Jazz Club in Leonberg, Germany.

Pianist Jimmy Smith first became known for occasionally playing a Hammond B-3 organ in the early 1950s while performing with Philadelphia R&B groups, transitioning to the instrument completely in 1954.

In 1956 he made his debut on the New York jazz circuit and signed with Blue Note records with whom he would participate in forty sessions in eight years earning himself the title "The Incredible" Jimmy Smith.
