Format: Audio CD
Recorded in Indianapolis in December 1957, and then again in April, 1958, the tracks on this CD herald Wes Montgomery's emergence onto the national scene. If you are a fan of Wes, you pretty much owe it to yourself. If you are not just a guitar nut, but love jazz in general, you will also be rewarded, because this is a very well-rounded album. Picture the Modern Jazz Quartet featuring Wes Montgomery. Throw in a couple tenor saxes and a young Freddie Hubbard. Best of all, Wes's brothers Monk and Buddy are on bass and vibes.
This CD is also a pretty decent value, because it includes the 1958 L.A. tracks which were not on the original LP, "The Montgomery Brothers and Others," and clocks in at 56:29. Sound quality is good--even the track "Bud's Beaux Arts," which was dubbed from LP. (And I don't think I would have even noticed if I hadn't read the liner notes.)

This is a solid collection of performances. But it is really a Montgomery Brothers record: Wes only has a handful of solos here. Buddy, Monk and Wes are paired with good players. My suspicion is that it was called a Wes Montgomery record for the sake of marketing/cashing in. It is quite a valuable document of early Wes. Unfortunately, the engineer didn't know a thing about recording electric guitar, that or Wes hadn't found his signature tone yet. The guitar sound on this record despite Wes' virtuous performances is flat and thin.

Some great Wes Montgomery jazz - nothing more needs to be said! Too short, OK. I have follow Wes and the brothers since the 60's and he is the best guitarist I have heard.

This interesting recording that dates from 1957/58 is a great document which reveals the great interpretative capacity of Freddie Hubbard in the trumpet and Buddy Montgomery in the vibraphone in particular. The participation of the great guitarist is eventually here and maybe the cd with tunes where Wes acquires major preponderance should occur. However, it is a good cd.
