Product Description:

Personnel: George Lewis (clarinet); Jack Willis (trumpet); Bob Thomas (trombone); Joe Robichaux (piano); Joseph "Slow Drag" Pauageau (bass instrument); Joe Watkins (drum).
One of the most well-known and highly revered festivals in jazz history is the Newport Jazz Festival. Celebrating its 50th anniversary is this multi-artist collection, which also serves as a nice summation of jazz history until 1957. Virtually all major styles (or "schools") of jazz are represented: iconic singers (Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday), swing (Count Basie), traditional (Turk Murphy, George Lewis), bebop (Dizzy Gillespie), cool (Don Elliott, Gerry Mulligan), New Orleans-via-Chicago/New York (Pee Wee Russell), hard bop (Donald Byrd), and even the beginnings of the avant-garde (Cecil Taylor). From mainstream giants (Oscar Peterson) to lesser-known performers (Leo Sash), NEWPORT '57 has it all--it is perhaps the jazz counterpart to WOODSTOCK. Whether you're a hardcore jazz fan or a novice seeking an overview, this 50th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION is practically essential.
