Bluebirdreviews was proud to attend the Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, Rhode Island.
Jazz and blues greats such as Marcus Miller, Esperanza Spalding and Gregory Porter ruled the stages, while cutting edge sounds from Ali Amr, surprised and delighted festival guests. Herbie Hancock and the entire NJF community honored Wayne Shorter for his 80th birthday in words and song.
