Happy birthday Newport

Groundbreaking jazz festival celebrates 50 swinging years :"George Wein has enabled Newport to survive with just hard work and not giving up," said 83-year-old pianist-composer Dave Brubeck, who has appeared at Newport more times than any other artist, starting in 1955. "The Newport festival was the beginning of a new way to present jazz."
