Synopsis

This screening will be followed by a live performance from Jazz trio, Swing Bridge in our cafe/bar.


Celebrated photographer Bert Stern captures the performances, people, and setting during one Saturday of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival.


The Newport Jazz Festival is one of the longest-running events of its kind in America, and along the way it’s played host to an incredible list of talented musicians.


Jazz on a Summer’s Day captures only a tiny handful of the many distinguished players who’ve passed through the Newport grounds, but it’s still pretty impressive: Louis Armstrong, Anita O'Day, Dinah Washington, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Stitt, and Mahalia Jackson are just a few of the giants on this year’s bill.
