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

New Orleans Rhythm


Despite what this broadcaster erroneously claimed in the video, this song is not "Bessie's Blues" by John Coltrane but rather "Rhythm-a-Ning."

A Thelonious Monk composition that first appeared on a 1957 Monk-Gerry Mulligan album, "Mulligan Meets Monk," "Rhythm-a-Ning" has since been covered by Chick Corea, Dexter Gordon and Art Blakey.
