Toto have welcomed many different band members across their long career but in the early nineties they had a short period as a four-piece featuring Steve Lukather (guitar & lead vocals), David Paich (keyboards & vocals), Jeff Porcaro (drums & percussion) and Mike Porcaro (bass). The line-up, with some additional touring members, performed this concert at Montreux in July 1991 and would go on to make the Kingdom Of Desire album released in 1992, shortly after the tragic early death of drummer Jeff Porcaro. The Montreux show, now being released for the first time, combines then unreleased tracks from the Kingdom Of Desire album with classic hits and covers of songs by Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone. It is a perfect addition to any Toto fan's collection.

Toto (as a 4-piece at this time) is on their game in this 1991 show at the famed Montreux Jazz Festival. Apart from the stellar performance by the band, the quality of this disc is terrific; especially impressive given that the show is 25 years old at this writing. High Definition (HD) video was in its relative infancy in 1991 and the late, great Claude Nobs (founder of Montreux Jazz) embraced it early. He’d been recording bands at the Festival in HD long before people could view it in that form. Now in 2016, we can enjoy his visionary efforts.
As a video director myself, I’ve always admired how the Montreux Jazz directors covered the musical performances. The directors here do an excellent job of knowing where to have cameras at the right times and we get to enjoy watching stellar musicianship without a bunch of frantic cuts.
As far as performance, the Toto guys seem particularly inspired. They’re locked in, energetic, and clearly enjoying playing together. This is especially poignant knowing that drummer Jeff Porcaro would be dead the following year. I, as a musician, truly enjoyed watching the musical interplay among the band members. The spontaneous encore of a Sly Stone song with all the musicians in Montreux for the festival adds an exclamation point of how fun this show is.
I’m SO glad this show was made available. Guitarist Steve Lukather re-mixed the audio so we would have the best sounding show possible along with a beautiful HD picture. This show sounds LIVE and is a disc to be enjoyed many times over. Thank you Luke, Montreux Jazz and Eagle Vision for bringing this special Blu-Ray concert to us!
In '91 The band was stripped down to 4 members. rockin'' harder than ever..
The Porcaro Brothers, Luke and Paitch.
Kingdom of Desire was eminent and the band was on a roll.
This is precious footage.
Happy smiles, amazing energy, no thoughts of the tradgy to come.
