Jazz Videos on MTV

MTV is playing videos again! Online, at least at their newly launched mtvmusic.com. I checked it out and – whoa – there are over 100 videos in the jazz category. I wasn’t even expecting a jazz category. There are a lot of Kenny G and Norah Jones videos but also a number of 80s Warner Bros. videos from the likes of Al Jarreau, Bob James, David Sanborn, Michael Franks, George Benson, Quincy Jones, and Miles Davis. Seeing some of these again is kind of a kick. I bet you’ll find some surprises too.

Here’s George Benson and Earl Klugh – Dreamin’:


  1. I’ve tried to watch a few of the videos (Bob James / Michael Franks) & unfortunately it keeps coming back with, “copyrights restrict us from playing this video outside the U.S.” So it looks like anyone overseas is not going to be able to view.

    • Depends on the mood. I like it all and sometimes I litesn to a jazz, then a blues, then a country song and who knows what else one right after the other.
