Live In Switzerland is a live album by Canadian blues rock trio The Jeff Healey Band, originally released in April 2005 via Eagle Records.

Norman Jeffrey "Jeff" Healey (1966 – 2008) was a blind Canadian jazz and blues-rock vocalist and guitarist who attained musical and personal popularity, particularly in the 1980s and 1990s.

He hit Number 5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart with "Angel Eyes" and reached the Top 10 in Canada with the songs "I Think I Love You Too Much" and "How Long Can a Man Be Strong".

Healey began playing guitar when he was three, developing his unique style of playing the instrument flat on his lap.  He formed The Jeff Healy Band as a trio with bassist Joe Rockman and drummer Tom Stephen.

After being signed to Arista Records in 1988, the band released the album See the Light, featuring the hit single "Angel Eyes" and the song "Hideaway", which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.  While the band was recording See the Light, they were also filming (and recording for the soundtrack of) the Patrick Swayze film Road House.  

In 1990, the band won the Juno Award for Canadian Entertainer of the Year. The albums Hell to Pay and Feel This gave Healey 10 charting singles in Canada between 1990 and 1994, including a cover of The Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" which featured George Harrison and Jeff Lynne on backing vocals and acoustic guitar.

 

Live In Switzerland was recorded at two Montreux Jazz Festival performances in 1997 and 1999. It features many Jeff Healey Band classics including "I Think I Love You Too Much", "Angel Eyes", "See The Light" along with cover favourites "Roadhouse Blues".

Any gig by Jeff Healey is a unique experience. These performances at Montreux see Healey faced by a more reserved audience than perhaps he was used to. But somehow this seems only to draw the best from him as, feeding off the propulsive energy supplied by long-time rhythm section Joe Rockman (bass) and Tom Stephen (drums), and sparring with second guitarist Pat Rush, he attacks a selection of self-penned songs and carefully chosen rock and blues covers.

Live In Switzerland is a testament to a brilliant and talented blues guitarist.

Check out performances and clips (not from the album) of: “Angel Eyes”; “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and “I Think I Love You Too Much”.
