Situated on the shores of Lake Geneva, Montreux has always been a fashionable resort and an attractive home for artists. But when I came to the US and talked to musicians during the 1960s, nobody seemed to know Montreux. Today, after nearly 50 years of spectacular music events, Montreux is a household word for musicians and fans alike. Claude Nobs, Founder and CEO of the Montreux Jazz Festival.
