One of the best-sounding John Prine recodings I have, this show might be one of the most star-studded John Prine shows ever. Margo Price, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, My Morning Jacket’s Yim Yames and The Night Sweats’s Nathaniel Rateliff each guested on one song, and (ex) Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters even brought his back vocalists from indie band Lucius for the song “Hello in There”. You can find tons of reviews of this concert online, as well as fan-shot videos on YouTube. John Prine inspired and influenced a lot of today’s best songwriters and this show proves that. As someone puts, “John Prine might not be your favorite songwriter, but he probably is one of your favorite songwriters’ favorite songwriter.”

All guest artists featured on this show paid tribute to John when he passed away – Margo Price and Nathaniel Rateliff performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk John Prine Tribute Concert, Jim James posted a John Prine cover on Instagram, Roger Waters recorded a video sharing his thoughts, and Justin Vernon wrote on his Twitter: “A simple majority of who I am as a person, let alone a musician, is because of John Prine. He is my number 1.”

This is great. Thank you for sharing!  For the sake of accuracy though, there was no 1961 Newport Jazz Festival. Seriously.  This Coltrane recording is from "Music At Newport," an entirely different one-off event that happened in Newport that summer.  Here's a basic synopsis of what happened (from the Newport Jazz Festival wiki). You can also read about it in depth in George Wein's highly recommended autobiography.  Stu

In 1960 boisterous spectators created a major disturbance, and the National Guard was called to the scene. Word that the disturbances had meant the end of the festival, following the Sunday afternoon blues presentation headlined by Muddy Waters, reached poet Langston Hughes, who was in a meeting on the festival grounds. Hughes wrote an impromptu lyric, “Goodbye Newport Blues,” that he brought to the Waters band onstage, announcing their likewise impromptu musical performance of the piece himself, before Waters pianist Otis Spann led the band and sang the Hughes poem.

Presentation of the proper Newport Jazz Festival was disallowed in 1961 due to the difficulty of the previous year’s festival. In its place, another festival billed as “Music at Newport” was produced by Sid Bernstein in cooperation with a group of Newport businessmen. That festival included a number of jazz musicians but was financially unsuccessful. Bernstein announced that he would not seek to return to Newport in 1962. The Newport Jazz Festival resumed at Freebody Park in 1962.
