Hear Big Names on the Internet

If you can't make it out to Newport, you can hear parts of the jazz festival on the Internet.

National Public Radio will broadcast the sets of some of the biggest names from the festival on radio stations based in New York and New Jersey, and they'll also be putting them on the Internet for live streaming, on-demand listening and, in some cases, "podcasting."

Artists from the festival whose shows will be on the Web include Herbie Hancock, Howard Alden and Esperanza Spaulding.
