Ken Franckling captures highlights of the weekend

The 2013 edition of the Newport Jazz Festival, presented by Natixis Global Asset Management, was filled with fine musical moments and graced with terrific weather, other than a few sprinkles early Saturday.

Festival attendance totaled17,200 between Friday night’s opener at historic Newport Casino and the Saturday and Sunday events across Newport Harbor at Fort Adams State Park. Headliners included Wayne Shorter (with Herbie Hancock aboard), Chick Corea, Jim Hall, Roy Haynes, Marcus Miller, Esparanza Spalding, Eddie Palmieri and Natalie Cole.

Ken Franckling was there for the 32nd time in 33 years, and captured many of the highlights…
