Just in time for the heat-wave... we've got a special treat for you over at billboggs.com — masters of jazz in performance—plus interviews—from the Newport Jazz Festival in New York (1979).

Here's a rare opportunity to catch jazz legends Bobby Short, Gerry Mulligan, Milt Hinton, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Bucky Pizzarelli, and Barbara Carroll playing together for the first time. In addition to some great sounds, you can view myTV interviews with co-producer Joyce Wein, Gerry Mulligan, film historian David Chertok, Bobby Short, Gerry Mulligan, and Eddie Palmieri.

Talk about a blast from the past! Here's a direct link to the complete video. You can also view short individual clips.

Enjoy the music and stay cool!
