Jazz On A Summers Day DVD


'‘Bert Stern’s one-off movie about the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival is a classic piece of multimedia, where sensitive, intimate cinematography of the performers is intercut with gorgeous images... the whole package is an audiovisual treat, a moment to savour from the Indian summer of jazz. ' THE GUARDIAN

The 1958 Newport Jazz Festival inspired superlative performances from the stars of the day. These are the highlights, taken from the soundtrack of the classic film.

“Jazz On A Summer’s Day” is one of the greatest jazz movies ever made.

Filmed over the four days of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival the movie not only captured inspired performances from the biggest names in jazz at the time, but also the style and fashions of late Fifties America.

Includes performances by: Thelonious Monk, Louis Armstrong, Dinah Washington, Gerry Mulligan and concludes with the peerless gospel singer Mahalia Jackson

‘Jazz on A Summers Day’ was the only film made by leading stills photographer Bert Stern (Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn), his photographer’s eye for the subject matter and his picture composition being apparent from the film’s series of unforgettable images of the performers, the audience and the picturesque setting of Rhode Island.
