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

From Wikipedia:

In the following dozen years or so he led his own bands and played for those led by Charles Mingus, Eric Dolphy, and Lucky Thompson, among others. He was Billie Holiday's accompanist for her final two years, and was house pianist for Prestige Records, appearing on dozens of albums and composing for many of them, including writing "Soul Eyes" with John Coltrane in mind. A breakdown caused by a drugs overdose in 1963 left him unable to play or remember any music; he regained his skills gradually, while composing film scores. He left the U.S. permanently in the mid-1960s, settling in Europe and touring internationally until his death in 2002.

This performance was recorded in 1986
