Jazz on a Summer's Day
is a documentary film set at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island,
filmed and directed by the famous Bert Stern.
As the most stylish and tasteful people of the time were jazz musicians in first place, and also jazz fans;
"Jazz on a Summer’s Day" is not only a great music documentary, it’s also an interesting snapshot
of the bygone fashion era:
cat-eye sunglasses, crew cuts, wayfarers, girls with cardigans, pony-tails and pedal-pushers, pork-pie hats, wide brim hats and pachuco trousers. Not a coincidence that the director was a fashion photographer.
I absolutely have to show you an extract of the great
Anita O'day singing "Sweet Georgia Brown"
she sends chill down my spine.
