The Incredible Jazz Guitar of - Ultra Rare American Club Performance
Wes Montgomery (g), Harold Mabern or Martial Solal (p)
This outstanding release features the extremely rare recording of Wes Montgomery, live at the Half Note in New York, and in Hamburg. One of the greatest improvisers in jazz, Wes stretches out on these two spectacular live recordings.
In the New York concert, Wes joins forces with the brilliant pianist Harold Mabern, whose post-bop concept and swinging feel are a perfect complement to his own ingenious playing, while in the Hamburg concert, Montgomery teams up with French piano phenomenon Martial Solal.
Today the legacy of Wes Montgomery is regarded with the highest appreciation and the deepest reverence. His revolutionary technique, impassioned playing and innovative spirit, have placed him in the annals of history, as one of the all-time great legends of jazz.
