Newport Jazz Festival 2019
WUNH's Jazz genre manager, Gary Lowe, covered the Newport Jazz Festival this year and found it to be, as always, wonderful. It's now under the artistic direction of world famous Christian McBride and he's influencing it in wonderful ways, bringing in other genres blended with all of the subgenres of jazz. The weather cooperated and all 22,801 attendees had a soulful time for the three days at Fort Adams State Park. Saturday had the highest attendance with 9,145 Jazz fans taking over the Fort. The Newport Jazz Festival is sponsored by Natixis Global Managers. It's 2020 festival is set for August 7-9! Here are some photos from this year's festival taken by Gary Lowe and Robert Festa.
