Whew (#4)

by Chris Randall

You _know_ your weekend's gonna be all right after you watch this shit. The sound is kind of asserific, with a vicious slapback, but who the fuck cares? From the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1980, this footage makes me wonder how the hell I ever played live without snyncronized-dancing backup singers. And a horn section. And, like, some sort of singing skill. Basically, what I'm getting at is "why bother?" It's done been preached. We'll finish this series off tomorrow with a real whopper.

I love that someone felt it was neccesary to put in a subtitle with thename of the song. As if you couldn't name it after the first four notes.

the sound is much better on the actual dvd - well worth checking out.
if only for marvin's improvised timbale solo and the broken stool sketch!

Lately i saw an interview of Claude Nobs, the founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, he declared to have something like 40.000 hrs of video that he kept from the last 40 years.
So if anyone knows Mr. Nobs & can have me an invitation to his Montreux country cottage, please don't hesitate ;)
