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

Born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1944, Montgomery Alexander began studying classical piano when he was six before developing an interest in jazz during his early teens.

He went on to play local clubs, and would appear on recordings by Clue J & His Blues Blasters.

After moving to Miami, Florida, with his family in 1961, Monty traveled to New York where he performed at Jilly's jazz club as an accompanist to Frank Sinatra.

He recorded his first album in California in 1964 and was featured on recordings with Milt Jackson in 1969, and Ernest Ranglin and Ed Thigpen in 1974.

After forming a group with John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton, Monty Alexander found fame in Europe and recorded his best known album Montreux Alexander live at the 1976 Montreux Jazz Festival.
