Jazz on a Summer’s Day

Jazz on a Summer's Day

New York photographer Bert Stern's first and only documentary is sort of the granddaddy of modern musical documentaries. Shot in 1959, the film takes us to the legendary Newport Jazz Festival where performers like Thelonious Monk, Louis Armstrong, Mahalia Jackson, George Shearing and more command the stage. A beautiful film and an amazing time capsule. This is a newly struck 35mm print. See also: Notable documentary titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world by Devin D.
