Not quite a concert documentary ...but a wonderful film by a brilliant photographer

Great film capturing the artists, jazz music, vibes and audience of 1958 Newport Jazz Festival. To my knowledge the first and only feature film by photo legend Bert Stern.
DVD shows soft image with washed-out colors. Recommended film, but maybe it deserves a decent Blu-ray release? This particular DVD edition, although incl. a soundtrack CD, leaves quite a bit to be desired...
