Missed this before ???

from another forum we have:

...the Montreux Festival currency "Jazz", introduced in 1990 but never really appreciated by the audience, would be phased out in 2007. Guess it was used to buy drinks etc. during/at the festival ...

A different instrument on each except for the 20 The design on this appears to denote an ear-splitting noise!  ;D
