Bert Stern?s one-off movie about the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival is a classic piece of multimedia, where sensitive, intimate cinematography of the performers is intercut with gorgeous images... the whole package is an audiovisual treat, a moment to savour from the Indian summer of jazz. The 1958 Newport Jazz Festival inspired superlative performances from the stars of the day... THE GUARDIAN (UK) ?Jazz On A Summer?s Day? is one of the greatest jazz movies ever made. Conceived by stills photographer Bert Stern (Vogue magazine, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn) and filmed over the four days of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, the movie not only captured inspired performances by some of the biggest names in jazz at the time, but also the style and fashions of late Fifties America. Interspersing footage of the crowds and the America?s Cup yacht races with the artists live on stage and largely devoid of dialogue, Stern?s fluid form perfectly echoes the jazz vibe tempering a fly-on-the-wall documentary style with surreal, dreamlike flourishes. This 2-disc media-book set includes an hour long CD of music highlights from the movie. This soundtrack CD was recently chosen as one of the all-time classic albums by Mojo magazine in its compendium, The Mojo Collection. Extras include: interview with Bert Stern, an introduction to Jazz On A Summer's Day, artist biographies and a photo gallery. The full-colour booklet includes an informative essay by Fred Dellar.
