"This concert is not for just the jazz aficionado, but for everyone who wants to experience an unforgettable evening of beautiful music, " said George Wein, Festival founder and producer since it began in 1954. "Last year Chris Botti won a much-deserved Grammy, and in concert will give you a set of music that emphasizes jazz's appeal to anyone who loves good music. Jon Batiste has become beloved as one of Newport's own, with his piano artistry and his magical use of the melodica."
