The one positive accomplishment of the 1960 Newport Festival was the creation in rebellion of a musicians’ festival at Cliff Walk Manor.  As the “official” rites were ending because of ugly rioting in the streets several hundred people were listening in calm and pleasure to the rebels at Cliff Walk.  The dissidents had been organized by Charles Mingus and  Max Roach in protest against the accelerating commercialization of the annual Ben-Hur-with-a-horn production of Freebody Park.  It was exhilarating for the musicians involved to realize that for once in their careers, they were capable of formulating and sustaining their own ground rules without booking agents, impressarios, and other middlemen.
