A Salute to the Newport Jazz Festival.
The show featured several American treasures who have helped define the art form, including trumpeters Clark Terry and Red Rodney, saxophonists Illinois Jacquet and Joe Henderson, pianists Dorothy Donegan and John Lewis, singers Rosemary Clooney and Joe Williams.
In addition, the program spotlights younger artists who are following their lead, including trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman and singer Bobby McFerrin.
The jazz virtuosos came together June 18 for a marathon performance that was videotaped under a tent on the South Lawn of the White House.
