The Newport Jazz Festival is a music festival held every summer in Newport, Rhode Island. Elaine Lorillard established the festival in 1954, and she and husband Louis Lorillard financed it for many years. They hired George Wein to organize the first festival and bring jazz to Rhode Island. Most of the early festivals were broadcast on Voice of America radio, and many performances were recorded and released as albums. In 1972, the Newport Jazz Festival was moved to New York City

re presenting don't fit the expectations of what some consider jazz, but the stodgers hated Dylan when he went electric at the folk fest here and Ornette just for showing up, anywhere. NJF puts on a great festival all around. Or when the dust whips up when it's too dry.
