30sJazz.com still 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, 30sJazz/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.

Thanks for all your support in all the forms it takes!

Ken, Lester, Henry, Sam and all the volunteers

Hazel Scott applies her classical piano to swing in this colorized footage from the 1943 film "The Heat's On".

On July 3, 1950 Hazel Scott became the first woman of color to have her own television show with the premier of "The Hazel Scott Show" on the DuMont Television Network.

Unfortunately Scott was called to testify by the House Un-American Activities Committee that same year. Her television variety program was cancelled soon afterward on September 29, 1950.

This and mounting issues with racial equality promped Scott to eventually move to Paris during the late 1950's in order to evade oppression in the United States.
