Live at Newport, 1995

Featuring the music of Thomas Chapin Trio
Duration: 2:22

Thomas Chapin Trio at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1995. Thomas considered this appearance a great highlight full of promise. The Trio, with Mario Pavone and Michael Sarin, opened the show and wowed the audience with their originality. Watch Thomas' hommage to his hero Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Little known behind-the-scene credit goes to John Phillips of Festival Productions who fully supported Thomas' growth and quietly guided him onto the festival stages in NY and the world, and who has given us permission use this clip.

Whooooah! To keep up with saxophonist/flautist Thomas Chapin on this one, you're going to need some of those monkey adrenal glands Hunter S.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
