The concert movie that came first--before Woodstock, Monterey Pop, The Last Waltz and Gimme Shelter--is still among the best. On a hot summer's day in Newport, Rhode Island in 1958, jazz greats Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, and Anita O''Day get together with Chuck Berry, Mahalia Jackson, and Dinah Washington among others to make this glorious gem of a movie. "A vivid adventure in sight and sound, a dazzling delight in glorious color" (Judith Crist, New York Magazine). Also includes the behind-the-scenes short, A Summer''s Day (30 mins.). Bert Stern---USA---1958---85 mins.
