LOCAL>> Jazz on a Summer’s Day
Classic concert film from Newport Jazz Festival 1958
Filmed at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival and directed by world-renowned photographer Bert Stern, Jazz on a Summer’s Day features an incredible collection of intimate live performances by an all-star line-up of musical legends including Louis Armstrong, Thelonius Monk, Gerry Mulligan, Anita O’Day, Chuck Berry, Dinah Washington, and closes with a beautiful rendition of The Lord’s Prayer by Mahalia Jackson at midnight to usher in Sunday morning.
“Shot in gorgeous color, it’s probably the best feature-length jazz concert movie ever made.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
