Toto – Live at Montreux 1991

Toto operated in a short period of time as a four-piece constellation consisting of David Paich (Keyboards), Steve Lukather (Guitars & vocals), Mike Porcaro (Bass) and Jeff Pocaro (Drums). They played the famous Montreaux jazz-festival in 1991 and went on to record “Kingdom of Desire”, which turned out to be the last album with drummer Jeff Pocaro, who died in August of 1992.

25 years have passed since they took the stage and performed a set nicely mixed up with, at that stage, new and untested songs, classics and two cover versions. The songs have all gotten a little jazz twist and turns into rock jams… all of the songs leave room for the artists for go a little out of the box and go free-styling.

“Africa” and “Rosanna” are like at any Toto live gig the highlights, and the two cover-versions “Red House” (Jimi Hendrix) and “I Want to Take You Higher” (Sly Stone) adds the little extra and unexpected to the live experience.

A nice piece of history for incarnated fans of Toto.

When I kicked this site off back in 2003, I had no idea that it would turn into what it has become. I am very proud of what we've done and achieved over the years. Musically I have a soft spot for 80s inspired hard rock, but my favourite music and bands are all to be found in the progressive universe these days.
