Montreux Jazz Festival

A new update for the 2007 Montreux Jazz festival has been announced and it makes me so excited inside. Too bad we won't be planning a trip there to see all the great bands. And for my tastes there are many!

Here's the list of some of the musicians attending. I also read Nora Jones will be there. My picks would be Faithless, Foreigner, George Benson and maybe a few more. P would be looking at Faithless and Pat Metheny for sure. But when tickets start at 99CHF, it really makes you think again...

The Chemical Brothers
The Beastie Boys
Tori Amos
Ismael Lo
Youssou N'dour
Chick Corea
George Benson
Al Jarreau
Jeff Beck
Rickie Lee Jones
Van Morrison
Pet Shop Boys
Solomon Burke
Jimmy Cliff
The B-52s
Pat Metheny
Maria Bethânia
Roger Hodgson
Wu-Tang Clan

The jazz festival is also scaling back acts and not including the casino as one of the featured venues. Read more about the Montreux Jazz Festival from Swiss Info..
