Claude Nobs, the MJF's founder and director, has slowly begun to think about retiring from the Montreux Jazz Festival over the last couple of years. But before doing so, he had TWO big artists on his wish list, which he really wanted to bring to the MJF to finish-off his professional career in beauty. The first one was his friend and long-time Swiss chalet neighbor David Bowie (who has also recorded songs in Montreux) - Claude achieved to put Bowie on the bill in 2002, where he played a sensational, extra-long set. The second artist on Claude's special wish-list was - PRINCE! With that in mind, you will understand Claude's very own enthusiasm about Prince’s attendance, originally billed the "Surprise Jazz Night". Working for this and rumored for many, many years, Claude finally made the impossible happen in the 2007 edition of the festival. Enjoy this truly historic document of a wonderful festival nite on the coastline of Lake Geneva, with Prince on fire!
