Chuck Berry Performs at 1958 Newport Jazz Festival

The most stunning moment of the film is Berry's "Sweet Little Sixteen." He begins his performance relatively reserved, playing a plodding version of the single with the house band. But soon, he loosens up, swinging his hips, hoisting his Gibson guitar up, duck-walking across the stage over a clarinet solo.
