ZZ Top - Live at Montreux 2013

.
The Little Ol' Band from Texas had a new album out when they took the stage in Montreux but the only numbers they play from La Futura here are "Flyin' High," "Chartreuse" and "I Gotsta Get Paid," a sort of prequel to 1972's "Just Got Paid."

The set otherwise is a generous set of hits and favorite cuts that finds the trio opening with "Got Me Under Pressure" before moving into "Waitin' For the Bus" and "Jesus Just Left Chicago" from breakthrough album Tres Hombres as a lead in to "Gimme All Your Lovin'."

The show is boogie-ing like mad but the guys take time out to do something really classy; mid show they play a two song tribute in honor of Claude Nobs, the late founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival.

The first song is a cover of Jimmy McGriff's "Kiko" featuring guest player Mike Flanigin on Hammond B3; the second is a straight blues number called "I Loved the Woman." Then it was time to get back to rocking as the band ripped through Jimi Hendrix's "Foxey Lady."

The show ends with a 5-song barrage of hits; "Sharp Dressed Man," "Legs" for which guitarist Billy Gibbons and bassist Dusty Hill break out their kitschy fur-covered guitars, "Tube Snake Boogie," "La Grange" and set closer "Tush."

ZZ Top are so polished at this stage of the game that they make the show seem effortless, and it's nice here that they rock out from start to finish with a minimum of stage patter.
