"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.)"
Great CD!

"Very good, Wes in the beginning, playing along with his brother and making very good music. His guitar playing was already melow, although it's tone would still change a little. A very good opportunity to hear this great player in a slightly different style."
