New Releases of Newport Jams at Radio City

Since the very first Newport Jazz Festival, George Wein loved to mix and match musicians on stage for unique jam sessions, and three new sets recorded in 1974 at Radio City Music Hall showcase that tradition at its best. The Mingus Midnight Jam featured an interesting mash-up of horns and violin held together, in part, by Charles Mingus; the Drum Extravaganza featured four of the best ever as Elvin Jones, Buddy Rich, Max Roach, and Art Blakey took turns dazzling the audience; and a Clark Terry All-Stars set saw some jazz veterans exploring their mutual interests in bebop, blues, and ballads.
