The music festival concept was still fairly young when Duke Ellington and his Orchestra arrived in Newport, Rhode Island in July 1956 to perform what would become one of the most mythically transcendent concerts in jazz history. As legend has it, Ellington told saxophonist Paul Gonsalves to blow as long as he wanted during his solo on "Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue." The resultant six-minute saxophone rave-up blew the roof off the heavens, triggering a massive collective audience ecstasy that can still be heard reverberating on the best-selling "Ellington in Newport," recorded for Columbia Records, the Duke's new label. Columbia staff photographer Don Hunstein caught "Mr. Hi-Fi of '56" outside his tour bus at the festival, taking care of business.
