4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Debut, the Best Was Yet to Be September 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Wes Montgomery, no questions asked the most gifted jazz guitarist of his and most times (he leaves his idol Charlie Christian far enough behind, and his acolytes have been many without quite equaling his lyricism and taste), was often enough believed to have said he felt most comfortable in the trio format with which he worked on this, his Riverside debut.

I've never seen an exact quote myself, but listening to the albums he did in such a format you can understand why he might have said it. In organist Melvin Rhyne (one of the great underrated players on his instrument in jazz) the master guitarist had a partner who'd been with him long enough in Indianapolis to have been a genuine alter-ego---the two never cross each other up, either when trading off on solos, or working ensemble passages, or playing call-and-response, and they communicate that ease to whichever drummers happen to be working with them at the time. The absolute best performances of the Wes Mongtomery Trio are textbook exercises in how to put the music first and not step on each other's corns doing it.

They begin well enough with this Riverside debut, and especially the leadoff selection, "Round Midnight," which Montgomery plays with such graceful understatement he gives one of the best impressions you'll ever hear of the empty hour the title refers, with Rhyne setting him a calmly melancholy bedding and drummer Paul Parker playing almost ambient brushstrokes that imply nothing short of a lonely walker ambling slowly toward the subway rather than face another night awake in an isolated apartment.

That performance alone makes the price a value, but it's far from the only value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Forget this One December 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Wes' second album for Riverside is the celebrated "Incredible Jazz Guitar". This is is first Riverside effort, done in the organ trio format. Don't start with 'Incredible' and forget this one! Some great tracks: 'Round Midnight', 'Yesterdays' and 'Ecaroh'.
If you decide to skip the organ trio format because you think you don't like it, then you miss Mel Rhyne on this one, and on others in the Riverside catalog. You don't want to do that.
Also of interest on this one is a very early version of Wes' own standard, 'Jingles', played much differently than what one hears later in his career. Wes is the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Typical December 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is not your typical sounding jazz record, so don't be too surprised or turned off when you initially hear it. I've discovered that the music on this one tends to grow on you over time. Of course, this version of "Around Midnight" is one the best ever, but there a lot of other gems here. The other bonus about this record is the clear, crisp sound quality. You feel like you're right next to his amp. If you like jazz guitar this is must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring June 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Wes Montgomery's three piece trio consisted of organist Melvin Rhyne and drummer Paul Parker. What defines Wes Montgomery? Is it his octaves, block chords, or his amazing solo's? I think they all fit into the define category. This was my second Wes Montgomery album and I in fact favored The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery over The Wes Montgomery Trio. But dont get me wrong this is def. a Wes Montgomery classic album. From the start of the album you can hear how inspiring Wes Montgomery's playing was on 'Round Midnight, from the soft sounds of Whisper Not. Missle Blues Demonstrates how creative and talented Wes's natural style was. If your a first time listerner to this kind of music and play guitar i would highly recommend listening over the album a couple of times to get alot of beautiful notes you may have missed, if you really want to play some real jazz guitar. Wes's natural style also made him inspiring to many guitar fans such as myself. Jingles is definetly one of my all time favorite songs on The Wes Montgomery Trio. This was Wes's debut album into the jazz world, it was recorded on October 5 and 6 of 1959. You will be inspired after you listen to The Wes Montgomery Trio. Highly Recommended!!!!
