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

Jazz Harmonie TV - Dec. 8, 1973


Paul Bley, another great pianist from Montreal (Oscar Peterson is the other one.)

Born November 10, 1932.

In the 1950s he started the Jazz Workshop in Montreal. This led to opportunities to perform and record with Charlie Parker. It also led to opportunities to perform with Lester Young and Ben Webster.

Later he was affiliated with Charles Mingus. In 1953 Mingus produced the album "Introducing Paul Bley album."

In 1958, he arranged for Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins to perform at the Hillcrest Club in California.

In 1964 Bley helped start the Jazz Composers Guild. The Guild brought together many free jazz musicians in New York: Roswell Rudd, Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp, his ex-wife Carla Bley, Michael Mantler, Sun Ra, and others.
