Jazz on the Tube needs you

"Back to School" fundraiser

Our 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, 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 and all the volunteers

Born in Pittsburgh in 1926. Brown had the amazing good fortune to meet and play with Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and Bud Powell on his very first day in New York. He was a regular with Dizzy from 1946 to 1951.

He had an incredibly busy career. When he was not performing, he was recording and when he wasn't playing, he was managing artists like the Modern Jazz Quartet and Quincy Jones. He discovered Diana Krall.

He literally played right up to the last day of his life, passing away in his sleep before a gig in Indianapolis.
