Program notes

George Wein, probably the most influential American jazz impresario, is the man behind the Newport Jazz "on the road" series, having founded the famous festival back in Rhode Island. Without him the Parisian crowds, who were already in love with jazz having seen an explosion of the genre's popularity in the post-war years, might not have been able to experience icons like Miles Davis in live concert. Here, in 1974, he was filmed performing for the second time at this event, backed up by a stellar crew including the innovative atonalist David Liebman on saxophone, the French, Art Ensemble of Chicago percussionist Dominique Gaumont and a trio of exceptional electric guitarists – the Jimmy Hendrix-esque Pete Cosey, the legendary Al Foster and Madonna's one-time producer, Reggie Lucas.
