Etta James at Montreux, 1977

Etta James at Jazz Festival, Montreux, Switzerland – July 9, 1977


Etta James was a powerhouse live, as this FM broadcast from 1977 attests. Her band here includes Brian Ray on guitar, Richard Tee on keys, David “Fathead” Newman on sax and Steve Ferrone on drums. Highlights abound but the absolute pinnacle of the set is her cover of Randy Newman’s ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On.’ A short set but packed with soulful performances by all.
