Trombone Shorty and others to play 60th Newport Jazz Festival


NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Wynton Marsalis, Bobby McFerrin and Dr. John are among dozens of artists set to perform at a Rhode Island festival that's showcased a who's who of jazz stars since 1954.

The Newport Jazz Festival is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Festival creator George Wein announced this year's lineup on Tuesday.

The festival runs Aug. 1-3 and will include performances from Trombone Shorty, David Sanborn and Gregory Porter. It'll get started at Fort Adams State Park with up-and-coming jazz artists.

An opening night concert at the International Tennis Hall of Fame will feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Marsalis and Dee Dee Bridgewater with a salute to Billie Holiday. The festival continues at Fort Adams the next two days.

Cool..... perhaps Metallica are fans...and I like both metal & jazz .... Metal is as complex as some jazz
personally I believe jazz broke all the rules.....so metal is a result of ...out of the box music creativity.

The Newport Jazz Festival is the grandaddy of them all. As a kid, it was always exciting to see who would be on the show that year.

It starts on August 1 and never ends. It's jazz, right?

Don't see JaRon Eames on your list.
He sings, promotes Jazz on a cable show and has written supar boo on Jazz.
"JAZZ CONVERSATIONS"
Just a suggestion
