    We're back for day two of our broadcast from the Newport Jazz Festival, streaming live until 7 p.m. It's pouring rain, but that hasn't stopped hundreds of jazz lovers from donning their ponchos, opening up their umbrellas and checking out their favorite musicians.

    Coming up today, we'll be playing music from James Farm, Mingus Big Band, Avishai Cohen, Mario Castro, Ravi Coltrane, John Hollenbeck, Miguel Zenon, and Rudresh Mahanthappa with Bunky Green. Stay tuned to the live stream, and visit our broadcast partners at NPR Music for archived sets of each performance, including yesterday's shows. We'll also be recording another bonus video from inside Fort Adams -- if you haven't seen Steve Coleman's hit from yesterday, check it out here and here.

    And, like Josh below, you can enjoy all the music without getting wet!
