Jazz on a Summer’s Day

Live Performance by Veronica Swift and her trio

In the 1950s jazz fans scoured record stores for LPs and crowded the clubs to hear the music live. But for a shared experience, there was nothing like the Newport Jazz Festival. Jazz on a Summer’s Day captures the 1958 celebration, when greats including Thelonious Monk, Dinah Washington, and Louis Armstrong took the stage—and Anita O’Day, elegant in a feathered hat and white gloves, sang “Sweet Georgia Brown,” and knocked the socks off the crowd. This marvelous film never gets old. We can’t wait to watch it again!
