Louis Armstrong, 1958. In 1958, Stern shot and directed the documentary film Jazz on a Summer’s Day at the Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island. The film’s simple variations on lighting and documentary style resonated with both audiences and film-world heavy-hitters such as Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee.
