The Montreux Dream: From B.B. King's Blues to the Soul of Beverley Knight, from REM to American college bands, the Montreux Jazz Festival is the most successful and respected European jazz festival in the world. Over the last 30 years, it has attracted the finest artists and remains the dream-child of one individual: Claude Nobs. This DVD presentation follows Nobs during the 1999 festival, as he books, entertains and performs with some of the world's greatest musicians. Contributors and performers include B.B. King, Buster Williams, George Duke, Beverley Knight, Charles Lloyd, Bette Midler, Peter Buck, Michael Stipe, Ahmet Ertegun and Claude Nobs. Archive performance footage featured includes REM, Miles Davis, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King (including extracts from his 1999 workshop), George Duke, Buster Williams, The Dubliners and much more!

The B.B. King Montreux Workshop 1999: B.B. King is THE Blues guitarist. This living legend boasts a devoted international following of both young and old. He is one of the most popular performers at the Montreux Jazz Festival. The B.B. King Workshop is always a highlight of the festival. This DVD presentation also includes the complete 1999 B.B. King Workshop. As B.B. King says: "As long as we have people, places and things, there will always be the Blues."
