John Leslie "Wes" Montgomery (March 6, 1923 – June 15, 1968) was an American jazz guitarist. Montgomery, like his idol, Charlie Christian, could play single-note lines like a horn player, but also incorporated chords and octaves in his solos. His jaw-dropping abilities made him seem super-human and he was soon hailed as one of the best jazz guitarists to have walked the planet, earning him top spot on this run down of the 50 best jazz guitarists ever. In March 1965 he recorded with Don Sebesky’s Orchestra at Rudy Van Gelder’s studio and the tracks made up the album "Bumpin’", becoming the first of his ten albums to make the Billboard Pop charts. The album proved difficult for Montgomery to make as when he was recording with the full orchestra he was unable to get the results he wanted.

John Leslie Wes Montgomery was one of the most influential jazz guitarists of the twentieth century. Starting to play guitar in 1943, Wes played a background role with such artists such as Lionel Hampton for years until the late fifties when he started to record. The Incredible jazz guitar of Wes Montgomery, recorded in 1960, was Wes’s first solo recording on the Riverside label and is regarded as one of his best. I can definitely say that it stands up to that claim. Airegin, the Sonny Rollins Composition that opens the album, is an example of this. Wes tweaks the catchy melody up by making some minor changes to it.
Guitar – Wes Montgomery. Photography By – Lawrence N. Shustak. Piano – Tommy Flanagan. Producer, Sleeve Notes – Orrin Keepnews. Newbury Comics exclusive. This Wes Montgomery album is great, but my Charlie Parker "Bird on 52nd Street" is a war crime. Do not pay a ton of money for these releases unless, like Shawshark said, you are completing a collection. Reply Notify me Helpful. Pretty poor pressing, has lots of marks and dents.
