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

After making a name for himself in Chicago playing and recording with Joe King Oliver's "Creole Jazz Band" during the early 1920s, New Orleans trumpeter Louis Armstrong took the jazz world by storm as a member of the "Fletcher Henderson Orchestra."

Following his brief stay in New York with the Henderson band he returned to Chicago and became the leader of his own "Hot Five" group with whom he would build an impeccable reputation as one of the greatest jazz artists of all time.

Although Armstrong often stated that he was born on the fourth of July 1900 it was later discovered through the examination of baptismal records that the true date of his birth was August 4th 1901.
