Friday, June 21   Jazz on a Summer’s Day   1959 / 85 min. / NR


More than a concert film, Jazz on a Summer’s Day takes place at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival during the America’s Cup yacht races. The narration-free film has the immediacy of a lived experience, shifting its focus between the ocean’s blues, straining sails and exquisite music performed by the likes of Anita O’Day, Thelonius Monk, Chuck Berry, Big Maybelle, Dinah Washington, Ray Charles, Mahalia Jackson, Louis Armstrong and Jack Teagarden.
