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

The "Modern Jazz Quartet" perform at Alexandra Palace, in London for the 1982 Capital Radio Jazz Festival.

Personnel:

Milt Jackson, vibes
John Lewis, piano
Percy Heath, bass
Connie Kay, drums

Connie Kay was a self taught percussionist who started out with Lester Young's quintet in the late '40s.

During this period as a session player he also at various times backed Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Stan Getz.

His phrasing and control on the cymbals made him the envy of many an up and coming percussionist.

In 1955 took what would be his longest enduring position with the "Modern Jazz Quartet", remaining until the group disbanded in 1974.
