Filmed at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival and directed by world-renowned photographer Bert Stern, Jazz on a Summer’s Day features intimate performances by an all-star line-up of musical legends including Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Gerry Mulligan, Anita O’Day, Chuck Berry, Dinah Washington, and closes with a beautiful rendition of The Lord’s Prayer by Mahalia Jackson at midnight to usher in Sunday morning.

Presented in collaboration with the TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival.

Reviews

Gorgeous. Probably the best feature-length jazz concert movie ever made.
- Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
Filmed with a rare artistry, a rare attention to making images of music that are themselves musical.
- Richard Brody, The New Yorker
An exquisite historical document. The film is where the American concert documentary genre begins.
- Philip Eil, VICE
