Jazz on the Tube

Welcome to Jazz on the Tube

Jazz on the Tube is the biggest annotated and indexed online collection of jazz videos on earth – and it’s free.

We deliver great jazz videos to over 40,000 jazz fans (and counting) all over the world every day.

We spend hundreds of hours searching the Internet each year for great jazz videos so you don’t have to.

Jazz on the Tube provides five free services:

1. A searchable archive of thousands of carefully hand picked and annotated jazz videos

2. A free Video-of-the-Day service. Love jazz? We deliver a great jazz video to your mailbox every day. You can subscribe here free.

3. The Internet’s only free up-to-date world-wide directory of jazz clubs, jazz festivals, jazz radio stations, and jazz organizations.

4. A podcast series, unique in jazz, that features in-depth interviews on the history – and future – of jazz with jazz scholars, educators, and presenters.

5. One of the most detailed educational resources available anywhere on the music of Cuba and other Latin countries and their under reported, and often under appreciated, impact on jazz past, present and future.

Why do we do this?

We do this because we love jazz and the people who make it and the people who listen to it!

If you’d like to support our efforts, please become a subscriber (it’s free) and watch some great jazz videos and then go out and hear some LIVE music.
