    It's hard to get a photo as the stage at Newport is shaded. The performers look out toward the boats, and send their music direct to thousands of people on the grass. And you! Thanks for listening!

    After her set, Anat Cohen stopped by to talk with WBGO's Josh Jackson, then ran off to sign CD's. She was the clarinetist in George Wein's Newport All Stars.
