It's nice that they're finally going back and recording all these moments in HD
RIP Jeff Porcaro - he died in August the following year, aged 38
How did they know 1080p was going to be a standard?
> From 1991 Sony provided equipment to film the festival in HD (high definition) format while keeping the rights to the footage.
> In early 2000 Nobs enquired about Sony’s HD Montreux Jazz archive and was told the firm was about to erase them as they were too expensive to keep. He eventually paid SFr10,000 and brought them all back to his private bunker via the Swiss diplomatic courier service.
Not only is it amazing quality footage but the band is playing great, the singers sound just as good as the record, and everyone in there is having a great time. Loving the vibes
It looks amazing but.... the light fixture streaks are a giveaway.
There should be a subreddit dedicated to HD video of events at the end of the 80s and in the 90s. It's so weird to see that era in HD.
What a performance.
