One of the most extraordinary — and possibly the first — concert films ever made, world-renowned photographer Bert Stern’s glistening, full-color document of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island is as intimate and gorgeous a depiction of a live music event as one could hope to see.
JAZZ ON A SUMMER’S DAY features an all-star lineup of musical legends including Thelonius Monk, Big Maybelle, Dinah Washington, Chuck Berry, Louis Armstrong, Mahalia Jackson, Anita O’Day, Gerry Mulligan, and many others, all of them performing at the top of their game and captured on warm, saturated color film stock, with close-up camerawork that captures every bead of sweat. Thanks to IndieCollect and the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress, audiences can now celebrate the 60th anniversary of this seminal work in sparkling 4K.
After your ticket purchase, you have THREE day to enjoy.
