Newport Jazz Fest 2011

Greetings from the 2011 Newport Jazz Festival, where things are just getting started here at Fort Adams State Park. It's a warm and slightly overcast day, with a cool breeze off the harbor, which surrounds the site on three sides. First up is the New Black Eagle Jazz Band, doing old school New Orleans jazz. Fun way to start the day.

I'll try to post updates throughout the day, but for those of you who are stuck back in NYC, WBGO 88.3 FM will be broadcasting live all afternoon today and tomorrow. Almost makes me wish I'd saved myself the drive. Almost.
