Abstract

Two new films about jazz have lately been given private showings in New York. The contrast between them was sharp and instructive, as it could hardly fail to be, in view of the fact that one was made entirely by white men and the other entirely by Negroes. The former, entitled Jazz on a Summer's Day, is a full-length documentary, directed by Bert Stern and shot at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival.
