This concert was filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival (Stravinski Auditorium) on July 19, 1997. DVD bonus features include a text bio and timeline. The highlight is the voice over track by the man himself, in which he offers anecdotes from the past, insight into specific songs, and a healthy dose of humor and soul. The Blu-Ray version of the DVD has 3 instrumental bonus tracks featuring the Ray Charles Orchestra:

 1. Just Friends (solos by Steve Elliott, Ken Scharf) 2. Beatrice (solos by Wayne Coniglio [arr.], David Hoffman) 3. Passeone Blues (solos by Rudy Johnson, David Hoffman, Ken Scharf).

The Concert Database of the Montreux Jazz Festival gives the whole setlist with the original duration of all  (obviously un-edited) songs, and specifies the line-up.
Joël Dufour and Steve Sigmund helped me to correct some omissions and misspellings.

Personnel: Musicians: Ted Murdock, Roger Ingram, David Hoffman, Ken Scharf - trumpet; Mike Guerrier, Steve Sigmund, Clay Lawrey, Wayne Coniglio - trombone; Al Waters, Al Jackson, Steve Elliott, Rudy Johnson, James Farnsworth - saxophone; Kenny Carr - guitar; Tom Fowler - bass; Ernest Vantrease - keyboards; Peter Turre - drums.
