Silvan Zingg special guest at the 45th Montreux Jazz Festival

Silvan Zingg & B.B. King

On 3rd July 2011 I was invited to perform with B.B. King at the 45th Montreux Jazz Festival. "A dream came true. I have been playing along to his records since my early schooltime" says Silvan Zingg. He invited a selected artists to the stage to perform with him: Carlos Santana, John McLaughlin, Shemekia Copeland, Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Philipp Fankhauser, Ladell McLin.  After the official concert in the Straviski Hall, piano legend Monty Alexander joined for a four hand boogie on the grand piano. The amazing George Benson took the mic and started to sing. Producer (Michael jackson) Quincy Jones stayed till the end of jam session. When we left together to the Hotel I got a great compliment: "You are a monster piano player!". "I'll never forget that magical day. Thank you Claude Nobs to make this all happen." Silvan Zingg
