Jazz on a Summers Day 1960

The most important me film has been Jazz on a Summer’s day viewed the day after my release from the six months in prison for Operation Foulness in 1960, The film featured many of the artists used as a backing track to the film All Night Long including Louis Armstrong who I have seen live in Croydon as well as jack Teargarden, the Trombonist. The audience is older and college kinds 1960 style in contrast from those attending the Soho Oxford Street jazz cellars in the fifties and early sixties. The film intersperses the Jazz festival at Newport Rhode Island with the Americas Cup races in1958 which added to emotions of my experience.
