The Newport Jazz Festival is one of the longest-running events of its kind in America, and along the way it’s played host to an incredible list of talented musicians. Jazz on a Summer’s Day, filmed during the festival’s 1958 performances, captures only a tiny handful of the many distinguished players who’ve passed through the Newport grounds, but it’s still plenty impressive: Thelonious Monk, Louis Armstrong and Dinah Washington are just a few of the giants of jazz on the bill. Since enshrined in the United States National Film Registry, the documentary has reaped praise from an array of critics that includes the A.V. Club’s Keith Phipps, who wrote, “Jazz on a Summer’s Day bounds from strength to strength, stylishly immortalizing transcendently beautiful music on a glorious day, suggesting in the process that film might have no higher purpose.” 82 mins
