Jazz on the Tube needs you

Our 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, and maintaining the world's biggest and most accurate database of jazz festivals, jazz clubs, jazz radio and jazz education on the Internet.

This July 4th week 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 and all the volunteers

True to the title of the song, the lighting surrounding jazz heroes Lester Young and Harry Edison would almost seem to suggest a streetlamp. A young jazz enthusiast named Norman Granz would round up the musicians for this film, who were put on celluloid by cinematographer Robert Burke. Burke was later responsible for filming most of Alfred Hitchcock's most famous work.

Featured alongside Lester Young is Illinois Jacquet, trumpeter Harry Edison, guitarist Barney Kessel, pianist Marlowe Morris and drummer Sidney Catlett.
