For any fans of Wes Montgomery,

Live in '65. 1 hour and 18 minutes of pure greatness.

Wes Montgomery had definitive cool and west-coast flair yet also earnest, warm sound. Sometimes swinging, or accompanied by lush and exotic orchestration, or soulfully grooviní with Jimmy Smith. In this case, at home jamming within a quartet just doiní some straight ahead jazz.

Itís a real treat to watch Wes and his band, laid back and unassuming. Not bad for a self taught, thumb picking, late bloomer who didnít read music.

2. I appreciate Wes


Because my Father being a musician here locally used to set in with Wes. But go over to Youtube and listen to Roberta Flack "trying times." Fits the occasion.
