Jazz on the Tube needs you

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 July 4th week 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

Jazz Num Dia de Verao, 1989


He wasn't born "Red Rodney." His original name was Robert Roland Chudnick.

He turned pro at 15 years old and performed in bands led by Jerry Wald, Jimmy Dorsey, Georgie Auld, Elliott Lawrence, Benny Goodman, and Les Brown.

in 1949, Charlie Parker invited him to join the quintet (both Miles and Dizzy gave him a thumbs up.)

After Parker, Rodney played in bands led by Claude Thornhill, Gene Krupa, and Woody Herman.

Personal problems caused him to drop out of the jazz scene in the 60s and 70s, but he made it back, his creative power obviously intact as this video demonstrates.
