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

Stanley Turrentine grew up in a musical family in Pittsburgh; his father a saxophonist, his mother a pianist.

His older brother Tommy played trumpet and Stanley followed in the foot steps of his father, first motivated to pick up the tenor saxophone by the sound of Illinois Jacquet.

He began his professional career in the 1950s playing in R&B groups including that of Earl Bostic.

In 1959 he joined drummer Max Roach's band, and married jazz organist Shirley Scott the following year.

After his divorce from Scott in 1970, Stanley Turrentine expanded his repertoire to include jazz fusion with an album release on the CTI label featuring "Sugar", one of the biggest hits of his career.
