On Thursday, June 19, the National Archives continues its Jazz at the National Archives series with a noontime screening of Jazz on a Summer's Day and an evening panel discussion titled Jazz in the USA: On the 60th Anniversary of the Newport Jazz Festival.
Noon Film Screening: Jazz on a Summer's Day
In 1958, photographer Bert Stern produced and directed this chronicle of the Newport Jazz Festival. Featuring performances by Louis Armstrong, Anita O'Day, Mahalia Jackson, and Thelonious Monk, the film is filled with illuminating images of late 1950s America. (84 minutes.) George Wein, founder of the Newport Jazz Festival, will introduce the screening.
7 p.m. Panel Discussion: Jazz in the USA: On the 60th Anniversary of the Newport Jazz Festival
For the 60th anniversary of the Newport Jazz Festival, journalist Soledad O'Brien moderates a panel discussion with George Wein, founder of the Newport Jazz Festival; Dan Morgenstern, author, archivist, and NEA Jazz Master; and jazz musicians Jonathan Batiste and Christian McBride. Film clips of the 1960 festival (from the holdings of the National Archives) will complement the discussion.


Jazz at the National Archives is made possible in part by the Foundation for the National Archives through the generous support of Natixis Global Asset Management.
