Jazz on a Summer’s Day, the concert film that set the stage for the rest to follow, has been newly restored and re-released in theatres, virtual cinemas and drive-ins for its 60th anniversary.

In 1958, photographer Bert Stern went to the Newport Jazz Festival and captured the fabled performances by an array of musical legends including Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Chuck Berry, Dinah Washington and Mahalia Jackson.

Jazz on a Summer’s Day is often considered to be the first feature-length concert film ever made, leading the way for others like Monterey Pop in 1968 and Woodstock in 1970. The film was added to the National Film Registry in 1999.
