British soul singer Sam Smith, freshly recovered from surgery on his vocal cords, delivered a smooth yet punchy concert to jazz fans on Tuesday night in his first appearance on the famed Montreux stage.

Smith opened with “I’m not the Only One”, followed by other chart-topping hits from his 2014 debut studio album “In the Lonely Hour”, including “Leave Your Lover”, “Restart” and “Not in that Way”.

“Wow, this is amazing to me for many reasons, I get to play a jazz festival which is historic. I saw Claude Nobs’ house yesterday and got to see all the history that has happened over more than 40 years, all of my idols,” the 23-year-old said.
