FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS: Montreux Jazz Festival | 1982
For its 16th edition, the Festival produces a poster signed by Jean Tinguely – the source of the Montreux Jazz Festival logo ; still used today as the official logo, it now qualifies as an internationally recognized brand. The Casino stage hosts Jackson Browne, Gilberto Gil, Jimmy Cliff, The Crusaders, Anita O’Day, The Dave Brubeck Quartet, Koko Taylor, Mink Deville, Sippie Wallace, Steve Miller Band, The Modern Jazz Quartet as well as Talking Heads, Milton Nascimento, The Lounge Lizards and Lionel Hampton accompanied by Lou Donaldson, Wynton and Brandford Marsalis. Spectators discover the supergroup A Gathering of Minds, composed of Jack Bruce, Billy Cobham, Didier Lockwood, David Sancious and Alan Holdsworth. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble come to Montreux for the first time and the Festival welcomes a visitor – a local resident called David Bowie.
