This year's Newport review features artist that we saw, both relatively unknown and some of the greats that appeared at the festival. The lineup was once again diverse. There were performances in the smaller tents that stretched the boundaries of the genre and there were artists that are living legends of jazz. We will hear from a sampling from both catagories. JD Allen, Matt Wilson and Skye Steele represent the direction jazz is headed. Wynton Marsalis, Chick Corea and Ahmad Jamal had great performances playing in more of the traditional style.
