 PBS - JAZZ A Film By Ken Burns: Jazz Exchange - Jazz Festivals
Bechet's appearance at the festival marked a triumphant return to the country from which he'd been exiled 20 years before, and he was so well received that he eventually decided to settle in Paris permanently, becoming a revered elder statesman of jazz, known to his legion of admirers as Sidney Nationale.
Ellington saw the festival as a chance to reinvigorate his career, and he did something he had never done: he gave a pep talk to his men before they went on stage.
Jazz festivals continue to play an important, vital role in jazz, helping to keep the music fresh and alive, welcoming new talents, and providing venues for different generations and schools of musicians to come together.
