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

Ray Bryant performs on an episode of the British TV series "Jazz Session" in 1973.

Philadelphia native, Ray Bryant first started on the piano at age six.

From 1953-1956 he was the house pianist in his home town's Blue Note Club, and there played with such jazz greats as Miles Davis and Charlie Parker.

After this he joined a trio which toured the world, and in 1973 performed at the "Montreux Jazz Festival".

Along with brother, bass player Tommy Bryant, and Oz Perkins, Ray formed a trio which provided accompaniment for the 1964 off-Broadway comedy "Cambridge Circus" starring actor John Cleese.

Ray has composed a number of songs including "Cubano Chant", "The Madison Time" and "Little Susie".
