on Newport

(September 2021) We’re a fan of the Newport Jazz festivals. We’ve been going for many years. in 2018, we worked with radio station WBGO – jazz radio to run buses for festival goers who needed the transportation from Berklee College of Music to the festival at Fort Adams State Park, Newport RI.

When the pandemic hit, we halted the bus service. The festival cancelled performances in 2019 and 2020 But its back. Recently we were saddened to hear of the death of festival creator Mr George Wein. He was 95. We put in this NPR segment in for those who enjoyed the festival and what George Wein contributed to the jazz world. -W.MURRELL


This is FRESH AIR. I’m David Bianculli, in for Terry Gross.

George Wein, the pioneering music impresario who created the Newport Jazz Festival in 1954 and the Newport Folk Festival in 1959, died Monday. He was 95 years old. Early on, Wein’s Newport Jazz Festival helped rejuvenate Duke Ellington’s career and revived the career of Miles Davis after years of decline from heroin addiction. We’re going to listen to Terry’s 2003 interview with George Wein, recorded at the time of the publication of his autobiography, which was called “Myself Among Others: A Life In Music.”
