From a user :
Just for the record, this was -not- recorded in Newport, Rhode Island but in Atlantic City, New Jersey. And it was Sid Bernstein who produced the show, not George Wein.

It may have been part of the Newport Jazz Festival, which had festival venues in various locations along the US Northeast, but I'm pretty sure this was not one of them. Look at the newspaper clip carefully

I am not sure who is right or who is wrong here..
it came from a pretty knowledgeable source but no one is perfect I guess!
and It is quite a remarkable show !
