Nowadays the rarest album in the whole Montgomery catalog this album went out of print long ago. I own everything Wes recorded in his life, all the original stuff (Verve, Riverside, A&M) plus some concerts recorded in those magic 9 years Wes played professionally (1959/1968). I consider this album as one of his best, Riverside albums included. It is very rare but more than ten years ago I have been lucky enough to find a copy of this cd and to buy it. It was the "Real 24 carat gold" edition of this album (I mean real gold), a part of a very limited edition serie of some of the best Jazz albums ever (for example Soultrane from John Coltrane was included in the serie). It was very very expensive, something like 40 or 50 US dollars here in Italy, but you have to consider that it was 1990's ... (1993 to be exact) so it was VERY expensive. However I bought it. I'm happy I did it because this album's value is 2, 3, 10 times more. I'm not Joking. If I was not having it, I'd spend that money to buy it.

These nine years with Wes has been only nine years yes, but how intense they were for the jazz world and for the guitar community in particular! Wes introduced a new way not only of playing the guitar in Jazz but another incredible way of playing Jazz in general! He was an hard bopper for sure just like Sonny Rollins, Johnny Griffin, Coltrane himself, but in the end his own man with an immense personality! I consider him as one of the greatest talent Jazz gave us and probably the guitar's Charlie Parker! Wes seemed unable to do something which was not absolutly outstanding (at least until A&M records which are less beautiful but not for Wes's fault but for A&M responsibilities). He recorded in those nine years a masterpiece after another and this record is no exception!

A reviewer from Italy thought that Nelson Riddle did the arrangements for this LP. The correct name of the arranger for this LP would be the late, great saxophonist/arranger/composer Oliver Nelson.

I am a musician and I read a fair amount of jazz journalism. I am perpetually amazed that jazz listeners, especially drummers, and critics have not noted how amazing this recording is.
Chim Chim Cherie is quite simply a classic. Wes and the drummer just BURN through the solo section of this tune. I would go so far as to say that this solo (really a duet)is one of the best examples of modern interactive drumming on record anywhere, by anybody, almost on the level of Coltrane/Elvin, Miles/Tony Williams interaction, but in a more mainstream vein. The energy, creativity and interaction displayed here is phenomenal. I assume the drummer is Grady Tate (Sol Gubin is also credited on the session) since I have heard him play almost as intensely on other recordings (check out Stan Getz's "Sweet Rain" and Oliver Nelson's "Sound Pieces"). The band just tears through all the charts on the record. The crack NY sessioners are clearly having a great time playing great charts by Oliver Nelson. This simply has to be considered a classic.

Wes Montgomery started out playing small combo jazz but as he became famous he was invited to make more commercial albums where he played current pop tunes backed by a star-laden jazz orchestra. While the music is tame compared to some of the small combo performances, it still manages to show off Montgomery's wonderful tone and phrasing. Moreover, the songs chosen are very good ones that provide Wes with a nice springboard for his interpretations. Some commenters rate this album higher than Day in the Life because they find the Oliver Nelson arrangements more exciting than the Don Sebeski ones. Maybe so, but they are also more bombastic. While the recording is generally pretty clear, some of the brass onslaughts are a bit grating. Either way, these albums are very enjoyable if you can take them on their own terms. They are even a bit nostalgic: the early sixties was a great time for melodious and moody pop, here graced by Montgomery's wonderful guitar stylings.

What can I say about Wes Montgomery possibly the greatest Jazz guitarist who ever lived, struck down at the ripe young age of 45 there is no way to measure the possibilities had he lived. I have collected all of his music and its value cannot be measured. Wes Montgomery has never played a song I didn't like ( How is that subjected opinion from a true fan ).
