Quincy Jones (Blu Ray) (2008)
|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 DVD for the first time.|
A few mentors have marked the life of Claude Nobs, founder and CEO of the Montreux Jazz Festival, and Quincy Jones is definitely one of them. Quincy's 75th birthday was an ideal opportunity to pay a tribute. For almost a year, work was underway to make the evening a unique world event and all the artists accepted without hesitation, some even volunteering to take part!
The result is a very impressive line-up and a very well-deserved tribute to a giant who has one of the most remarkable careers in the history of music.

Editor's NoteThe annual Montreux Jazz Festival always attracts big names, but a truly impressive roster showed up to celebrate Quincy Jones?s 75th birthday in 2008. To fete the musician and mega-producer, a live show was staged, featuring over two hours of music and dozens of talented artists. Chaka Khan, Patti Austin, Paolo Nutini, Petula Clark, and Al Jarreau are just a few of the singers who performed hits like "Stuff Like That," "Billie Jean," and "What?s Going On."
