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

The Jazz Messengers

Composed by Lee Morgan who clearly knew his way around the tune.

Walter Davis plays piano on this particular film. Jymie Merritt on bass, Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on bass, Art Blakey on drums.

The Messengers began with a series of groups led or co-led by drummer Blakey and pianist Horace Silver, but the name was not used on the original recordings.

However, Blakey had used the name "Jazz Messengers" since the late forties for various groups.
