"Carlos Santana
Presents Blues At Montreux 2004"



On 16 November 2009, Eagle Rock Entertainment release "Carlos Santana Presents Blues At Montreux 2004" [Cat No ERBRD5044]. July 12, 2004 was a very special night at the Montreux Festival for any blues fan. With Carlos Santana as musical director (and special guest guitarist), three musical legends took to the stage, each one delivering a full concert set packed with some of the finest blues guitar playing you'll ever hear. Eagle was the first visual music company to embrace High Definition and their commitment to the new technology continues with new additions to their Blu-ray catalogue.

Bobby Parker, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and Buddy Guy are all headline acts in their own right so it was a real coup to get them on one line-up. The release offers full length sets (70 mins, 71 mins & 97 mins) from the three headline acts. Throw in the guest appearances by Carlos Santana and Chic maestro Nile Rodgers and blues heaven is complete! This release also boasts an astonishing line-up of top class musicians (other guests include Chester Thompson, Barbara Morrison, Andy Vargas, Jeff Cressman and Eric Demmer).
