Newport Jazz Festival: Matt Wilson Quartet in Concert

Airs Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m. Drummer Matt Wilson is one of the friendliest guys in jazz, and his music, even at its most complex, reflects that: It's unpretentious and full of easygoing swing. He brought the latest edition of his working band, the Matt Wilson Quartet, to the Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, R.I., along with a set of new arrangements for string quartet and guest vocalist.
