Here are a few more favorite images from this year's edition of the storied Newport Jazz Festival, held July 29-31 at Fort Adams State Park. This was my 41st consecutive trip to historic Newport to cover the festival. The streak started when producer George Wein brought the event back to Newport in 1981 after a 10-year hiatus.
