The Newport Jazz Festival’s historical moments and recordings have been well-documented, going back to 1954. But during the past 10 years, the festival has made news by continuing to discover new talent and nurture the incredible creative community of jazz and related music that thrives today. Eighty-seven-year old festival producer George Wein still hangs in New York’s jazz clubs, always watching for the next big thing. Take in the festival’s tour stop in Madison to see whether he’s found it.
