"SPLENDID… CERTAINLY THE BEST JAZZ CONCERT FILMED OF ALL TIME." JONATHAN ROSENBAUM
"FOR ME, THE MUSIC FILM REFERENCE." PAUL THOMAS ANDERSON
Directed by the great fashion photographer Bert Stern – to whom we owe the famous portraits of Marilyn Monroe taken shortly before her death – Jazz on a Summer's Day is one of the very first concerts filmed in the history of the cinema and certainly one of the most legendary. Louis Armstrong, Mahalia Jackson, Chuck Berry, Chico Hamilton… the greatest legends of jazz parade under the bright sun of Newport and deliver a unique performance. Between two concerts, Bert Stern films the effervescence that animates this city, like an enchanted parenthesis. A rare testimony to late 1950s America to be discovered for the first time on Blu-ray™ and DVD in its 4K restoration!
