First Yellowjackets appearance at Montreux, 1981

Historic footage! This is a rare video of Yellowjackets at the 1981 Montreux Jazz Festival. The performances from this were released on the “Casino Lights” albums back in the early 80s. Personnel include Russell Ferrante on keyboards, Jimmy Haslip on bass, the late, great Ricky Lawson on drums, and the legendary Robben Ford on guitar. This was videotaped from a European television broadcast in 1981, so quality is early VHS at best. Both parts are included here.  (From our official Yellowjackets YouTube channel.)
