Throwback Thursday || Bert Stern’s Jazz on a Summer’s Day

02/05/2012 § Leave a comment

In gorgeous color, photographer Bert Stern captured the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival in his lovely film, “Jazz on a Summer’s Day.”  An amazing cocktail of pop culture, jazz, sailboats and summer in New England, it is definitely worth your time.  I can’t wait for summer, by the by.  Sidenote: I personally feel Anita O’Day’s hat almost steals the show — would be perfect for the Derby this weekend, no?

If you’d like to have it in your own library, head here to purchase.
