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

Opera Break


"This isn't jazz."

"What are you doing?"

Save your breath guys.

For those who want more, check out the opera "La Boheme" by Giacomo Puccini.

You don't think Bird grooved on this?

I guarantee he did.

I'd love to see jazz musicians work with this melody (and others like it).

Little known fact...New Orleans in its pre- and early jazz days was a big classical music center with very high standards of musicianship.

The city's famed French Opera House rocked from 1859 to 1919 and the first opera was performed in the city in 1790. A lot more than work songs and red light district music went into the mix that became jazz.

Please share your favorite JazzontheTube.com videos with your friends and colleagues

That's how we grow.
