The final day of the 2017 Newport Jazz Festival closed out the weekend with another lineup of solid performances Sunday at Newport’s historical Fort Adams State Park.

A beautiful day wrapped up the weekend with over 20,000 fans, 50 bands, and four stages fulfilling the appetites of all those in attendance.

Another strong lineup of acts completed the weekend’s presentation of extraordinary music. Highlights of the day included the magical music of the Maria Schneider Orchestra, the spirited voice of Cyrille Aimee, the deep sound of Theo Croker, a moving tribute to Fats Waller by Jason Moran, the funk sound of The Philadelphia Experiment led by Christian McBride, the talented Cyrus Chestnut Trio, the Caribbean inspired Bokante, Hudson featuring the multi-talented lineup of John DeJohnettte, Larry Grenadier, John Medeski, and John Scofield. The day finished with a solid show by R&B stalwarts The Roots.
