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

Brooklyn, 2000


Recorded in concert at Sista's Place in Brooklyn, New York on April 8, 2000.

Avid multi-instrumentalist and composer Ken McIntyre often performed this saxophone solo as a welcoming introduction at the beginning of his shows.

In the early 1990s Ken McIntyre changed his name to Makanda Ken McIntyre.

According to the story, while touring in Zimbabwe, a stranger handed him a piece of paper with the word "MAKANDA" written on it.

"Makanda" means "many skins" or "many heads" in African dialects.
