NO SIR, It's not easy single-handedly running what has often been referred to as: "the best free vintage music website on the internet".
And it may very well be, but this wonderful resource still costs thousands of dollars per year in operating expenses alone.
All the while long unpaid hours are spent daily updating, expanding and developing our future content.
PLEASE SEND US YOUR $ DONATIONS $, So that we may continue in our mission to spread jazz, knowledge, and joy worldwide in 2019 and beyond.

In 1931 when Joe "King" Oliver's health deteriorated to the point where he could no longer lead his band or perform, his nephew Dave Nelson assumed control of his famous Orchestra. An extremely talented trumpeter in his own right, Nelson went on to direct the group for their next two recording sessions held in June and again in January (billed as "Dave's Harlem Highlights") of that year.
