Ameranouche plays Newport Jazz Festival 2008

Post by dropdeadblues »

Ameranouche will be opening for Herbie Hancock and Sonny Rollins at
the legendary Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island on Sunday, August
10th at 11am. Other names on the line-up include headliner Aretha Franklin, Bad Plus and many more...

About Newport Jazz Festival:
The 2008 JVC Jazz Festival Newport continues a legacy begun in 1954,
when George Wein launched the modern music festival era with the
Newport Jazz Festival. Over the decades the event has become an
thread in the fabric of jazz music, the name itself synonymous with
some of the greatest performances in the genre's long history. With a
heritage that includes appearances by Duke Ellington and Dizzy
Gillespie to Miles Davis and Ornette Coleman, JVC Jazz Festival
Newport throughout the years has always given festival-goers a chance
to witness musical history on the stage.

There are some other big names at the fest I have yet to mention.
Aretha Franklin (headlining) members from the Bad Plus, Dave Holland,
Chris Potter, Soullive and Fred Wesley... and many more.
