|Founded in 1967, the Montreux Jazz Festival has established itself as one of the most prestigious annual music events in the world. The extraordinary list of artists who have played there is drawn from across the musical spectrum and from around the world. Now, with the consent of the festival and the artists, Eagle Vision is making these concerts available on Blu-Ray for the first time.|
B.B. King has been one of the most frequent visitors to Montreux with nearly twenty appearances down the years. Always a vibrant and charismatic live performer, this 1993 concert will surely rank as one of his finest from any venue and captures B.B. King right at the top of his form with a superb backing band and great set list. It all goes to show that B.B. is still the "King Of The Blues."

Editor's NoteWhile B.B. King has made many an appearance at Montreux, his 1993 performance is considered the best of the bunch. This live release captures the legendary bluesman and his deft backing band playing an incredible 16-song set, including "The Thrill is Gone," "Why I Sing the Blues," and "Let the Good Times Roll."
