Highlights of the third and final music-packed day at Newport included the high-powered and hilarious Sammy Miller & the Congregation; a three-piano tribute to Erroll Garner featuring Christian Sands, Tadataka Unno, and Helen Sung; Marcus Strickland’s compelling space explorations with Twi-Life; a scorching set from the Dafnis Prieto Big Band; and Camila Meza leading her magical Nectar Orchestra (their utterly gorgeous performance may just have been our favorite of the festival, and that’s saying a lot). Shabaka Hutchings’ Sons of Kemet, Terence Blanchard’s E-Collective, and Aaron Diehl’s quietly intense trio—both with and without the regal singing of Cécile McLorin Salvant—offered further reason for celebration.
