In 1958, legendary photographer Bert Stern went to the Newport Jazz Festival and and created the concert film that all others would follow. On its 60th anniversary, discover, or rediscover, the fabled performances that made music history that summer thanks to this stunning new 4K restoration. Featuring dazzling array of musical legends—including Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Chuck Berry, Dinah Washington and Mahalia Jackson—in some of the most effervescent images of live jazz ever brought to the screen, Jazz on a Summer’s Day will transport you to a simpler time when we could all come together to listen and dance to great music.

The film will be available for 48 hours from when you start the stream. Please note streaming is only possible from inside Canada. Need assistance? Visit our FAQ page or email us at streamingsupport@hotdocs.ca.
