A Message from Newport is an album released by Canadian jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson featuring tracks recorded in 1958 and originally released on the Roulette label. The album was recorded in the studio but titled to capitalise on the bands successful appearance at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival.
AllMusic awarded the album 3 stars and its review by Ron Wynn states, "Trumpeter Maynard Ferguson leads his big band in a fiery date recorded in 1958... He was playing no-holds-barred, straight-ahead jazz at this time, and doing it with gusto".
