Newport Rebels is an album by various artists released under the Jazz Artists Guild led by bassist Charles Mingus and drummer Max Roach, recorded in November 1960 and released on the Candid label.
Allmusic reviewer Scott Yanow states "In 1960 bassist Charles Mingus helped to organize an alternative Newport Jazz Festival in protest of Newport's conservative and increasingly commercial booking policy. The music on this LP (which has been reissued on CD) features some of the musicians who participated in Mingus's worthy if short-lived venture".
