Montreux Jazz Festival

"Playing with a big band is something I've been wanting to do for a long time, ever since I came across Buddy Rich's 'Swinging New Big Band' album". It finally took over thirty years for the dream to come real! With my manager insisting I should do it and Claude Nobs, Quincy Jones and Ahmet Ertegun encouraging me as well, I am now finally at the head of my own big band. We'll be playing several songs from my solo career or from Genesis' repertoire, slightly rearranged, and I look forward to taking advantage of such an exciting opportunity to make songs sound different. I'd also like to add that for me, having Quincy Jones as conductor and Tony Bennett as a guest singer, it is also a dream come true. Having been a fan of theirs for years, and now being their friends, it is a great honor for me to be able to play by their sides. We are all extremely excited to play together in front of you, and we hope you will enjoy this experience as much as we will."
