    THE NIGHTLIGHT UNDER THE STARS: JAZZ ON A SUMMER'S DAY (1959)

    SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18TH AT 8:00PM 

    Join us at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens for the 6th in our fall outdoor film series.

    Seating is limited to 80. Reserve your spot today!


    JAZZ ON A SUMMER'S DAY (1959) 85 min.

    This documentary concert film captures the sounds and performances of some of the major jazz artists at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival. Unlike earlier jazz movies that had been filmed in smoky black and white, this is shot in vibrant color. While musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Anita O'Day and Mahalia Jackson perform, images of beaches, sailboats on water, dancing couples and the faces of joyful audience members are intercut into the proceedings.

    "Several of the performances are among the treasures of filmed music; all of them, whatever their musical merit, are filmed with a rare artistry, a rare attention to making images of music that are themselves musical." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker
