"Go to the Newport Jazz..." Newport Jazz Festival Tip by sarabee

Newport Jazz Festival, Newport: 2 reviews and 0 photos

Go to the Newport Jazz Festival!
The oldest and best jazz festival anywhere...everyone has played Newport (Duke Ellington, Count Basie,and Bill Cosby just to name a few). This year we went to the opening night gala at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and saw the Roy Haines Trio and Diana Krall. We met people who'd driven from Tennessee just to attend. It is a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, usually in mid-August.
