Ray Charles At Newport (2001)

Reuters archive keeps a 7m50s showbiz reel titled Music Lovers Gather For The Annual Newport Jazz Festival, dated 10 August 2001 (ID 108100034; source here). "A soaked audience was treated to the sounds of Natalie Cole, Ray Charles, Dave Brubeck- and a special performance by comedian Bill Cosby. [...]. The biggest musical name at the festival, Ray Charles, had the audience dancing in puddles of rain at Fort Adams State Park late Sunday afternoon (August 13)."
In the 15th sequence the clip shows "Ray Charles performing with band" for a little less than a minute.
