Photo Gallery: The Newport Jazz Festival 2014 by John Abbott

Three inspired days of music and musicians

Photographer John Abbott on the accompanying photos from the 2014 Newport Jazz Festival:

“Three inspired days of music and musicians. I set up my makeshift photo studio within earshot of the Quad Stage inside the beautifully decrepit officers’ quarters at Fort Adams. Perfect location where perfect light filtered in to illuminate many of the festival’s performers before or after their gigs. Some memorable highlights included an entertaining visit from Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band in the middle of a torrential downpour. Jon Batiste smiled and leapt in his canary-colored suit. A stylish Grace Kelly appeared suddenly on Sunday afternoon wearing lovely parrot-feathered earrings. Prodigious three-day hang with what has become, for over 20 years, my extended Newport family: musicians, photographers, journalists, promoters, festival staff and friends.”
