Like most gatherings of more than 10 (or is it 2, now?) Montreux Jazz Festival has been indefinitely postponed due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
And while administrators sort out a plausible return date for the legendary Swiss music retreat, they’ve shared a mountain of full performances from the archive to hold us over. On the live music steamer, Qello, the festival uploaded more than 50 sets from iconic musicians, including Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone, James Brown, The Wu-Tang Clan, Isaac Hayes, Run DMC, Nile Rodgers & Chic, and more. All of the performances are available for free for 30 days with an access code. You can read up on how to dive in here.
While you’re there, comb through Qello’s extensive catalog of music docs and live performances. Reruns of The Office can only go so far. And god knows you’ll have some time to kill in the immediate future.
