Newport Gets Jazzed

06:11 AM Saturday 5/17/08 | |

It's another all-star lineup for this year's JVC Jazz Festival Newport with Herbie Hancock, Chris Botti and Sonny Rollins set to headline the three-day event in Newport, R.I.

The event, held August 8-10 at Fort Adams State Park, brings together some of the biggest names in jazz with up-and-coming artists on three stages.

The festival kicks off with a concert by Botti and Ledesi at the International Tennis Hall of Fame at The Newport Casino.

Event producer The Festival Network has chosen acts that strike a balance between tradition and new, jazz-influenced directions.

"There are some acts that are favorites from the festival's past, but then half of the fun of Newport Jazz has always been the discovery of the next generation of musicians through stand-alone shows and great collaborations," Tom Shepard, company CEO, said in a statement. "We respect the traditions of Newport and feel a responsibility toward the festival's fans, artists and host community to create an event worthy of its deep history."

Other acts on the bill include Wayne Shorter Quartet, Soulive with Fred Wesley, Dave Holland, Haden-Iverson-Motian, Anthony Hamilton Blues Project, Guillermo Klein y Los Guachos, Warren Vache' Band, Ledisi and more.
