Havre de Grace Jazz & Blues Festival:
Jazz on a Summers Day (Film)
June 7, 2019 at 5pm
Bert Stern’s documentary record of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival is often hailed as one of the first and most influential live concert films. An incredible collection of classic live performances, Jazz on a Summer’s Day captures Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Chuck Berry, Mahalia Jackson, and many others, including some “new talent” that went on to become jazz legends. Several of the performances are among the treasures of filmed music; all of them, whatever their musical merit, are filmed with a rare artistry, a rare attention to making images of music that are themselves musical.
Tickets are FREE! Registration is recommended.
