My first day at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1969 included Anita O’Day. If you saw the lineup for the festival you might understand why I forgot (!) her performance.
Well. There it is. To me, it beat Woodstock (two weeks later) hands down. But then I saw Hendrix 2 years earlier. In 1957 a fashion photographer shot a documentary about that festival. It is truly a work of art that every music lover should see.
The clip below is from that movie. Thank God the abortionists stayed home on this day in 1919.
