'Experience Montreux 3D' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon Jun 17, 2013 at 01:00 PM PDT by

The 3D concert flick will bring the celebrated Jazz festival to Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock Entertainment is preparing 'Experience Montreux 3D' for Blu-ray 3D on June 18.

'Experience Montreux' features live performances of full tracks by Mumford & Sons, Elvis Costello, Massive Attack, Joe Bonamassa, Angelique Kidjo, Sophie Hunger, Martina Topley Bird and many more. Filmed in high definition 3D, this disc will play in 3D on 3D set-ups and in 2D on regular Blu-ray players.

'Experience Montreux,' filmed at the 44th Festival in 2010, contains full live tracks by a range of artists that reflects the breadth and eclecticism of the Montreux Jazz Festival. The performances are interspersed with interviews with festival founder, the late Claude Nobs, and many of the artists involved, and are accompanied by stunning footage of the festival setting, the town of Montreux, Lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps.

This set brings together the 'Experience Montreux' film plus concert performances from the Montreux Jazz Festival by Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones and the Global Gumbo All-Stars. Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock have both been frequent visitors to Montreux over the years and it's fitting that their performances form a part of this 3D celebration of the magic of the Montreux Jazz Festival.
