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.

A film by Henry Ferrini


The trailer for Henry Ferrini's documentary film, "President of Beauty: The Life & Times of Lester Young."

Writer and poet Amiri Baraka, saxophonists Lee Koonitz and Joe Lovano, pianist Junior Mance, and others reflect on Prez and his effect on them in life and in death in between historic clips and interview excerpts.

During the interview segments Lester sharing his nonconformist outlook about racism in the music industry. Later he offers his synopsis on the two different types of sounds produced by the tenor saxophone.
