Montreux Jazz Festival 1969 Switzerland

0.0 (0)


The Festival's third edition is a five-day event whose spectators get a chance to see and hear jazz big names like Phil Woods, George Gruntz, Philip Catherine, Alan Skidmore, Kenny Wheeler or Kenny Burrel. Backed by Kenny Clarke and Ernie Wilkins, Clark Terry conducts the Festival Big Band, composed of the best contest-winning musicians. Tommy Flanagan accompanies Ella Fitzgerald on the piano ; the First Lady of Song takes advantage of her stay in Montreux to enjoy – from her front row seat – Les McCann's and Eddie Harris' memorable concert. Swiss movement, the concert recording, will be the first live album in the history of jazz to sell over a million copies. And when it welcomes Colosseum and the group Ten Years After – whose guitarist Alvin Lee electrifies the audience a few weeks before appearing at Woodstock – the Festival opens its doors to rock.
