It's almost like a joke now: Which Newport festival weekend is going to get more rain? Folk or Jazz? Because the Narragansett Bay doesn't play around. Aside from the morning monsoon, the first day of the Newport Jazz Festival cleared up and gave us sunny sets from Marcus Miller (and his Bruce Lee action figure), the Terence Blanchard Quintet, Esperanza Spalding, a clarinet-assisted Bill Charlap Trio, and a very happy 80th birthday set with Wayne Shorter featuring Herbie Hancock. See a gallery of Adam Kissick's photos here and follow us on Flickr.
