WBGO & NPR Music are at Newport! Tune in tomorrow!
August 9, 2008. Posted by Becca Pulliam.
People start lining up at 6am or earlier, then when the gate opens at 10, the first people in line make tracks to the turf directly in front of the main stage of the 2008 Newport Jazz Festival, and start laying out their tarps and staking out their territory. Beautiful day here!
Tomorrow we are live from 11:30 on, on WBGO 88.3 FM and wbgo.org. This morning at 11:30, you can hear the first set -- Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Eric Harland -- at NPR Music. WBGO's Josh Jackson hosts. LIVE. This is the same quartet that opened the 50th Monterey Jazz Festival. They set the bar!
