• Newport 2012: The Festival in Photos - Day One

    August 5, 2012. Posted by Tim Wilkins.

    The sun was hot and the music hotter on the first day of the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival, as those of you who watched our our live video stream or listened to our live broadcast on WBGO-FM from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday already know. Pedrito Martinez, John Ellis, James Carter and dozens of others brought their best to the stage. If you missed them, you can hear many of these sets on the Newport Jazz page over at NPRMusic.org.

    We will be broadcasting again from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, but in the meantime, here are a few peeks at yesterday's shows. Enjoy!
