On a magical night in Montreux in 2004, Carlos Santana invited three of his favorite bluesmen: Buddy Guy, Clarence Gatemouth Brown and Bobby Parker for a concert of outstanding blues music. Each artist performed a full length concert and was joined on stage by Carlos Santana and other guests including Nile Rodgers and Barbara Morrison. 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 delivered a full concert set packed with some of the finest blues guitar playing you'll ever hear. 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 lineup. Throw in the guest appearances by Carlos Santana and Chic maestro Nile Rodgers, and blues heaven is complete!
