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

Founding member of the "Jazz Crusaders" pianist Joe Sample formed the group while he was a student at Texas Southern University during the late '50s inspired by Art Blakey's "Jazz Messegers."

He left school in 1961 and moved to Los Angeles with his band mates, releasing their first album "Freedom Sounds" later that year.

Sample has had a successful solo career since the early 1980s and has made guest appearances on recording of other artists including Miles Davis.

He remained a part of the "Jazz Crusaders" until their final album in 1991.
