"Another vote for Boss Guitar for the best Wes Montgomery record of all time. These remastered series are limited, and the sound is so much better than the regular CD that you wont believe it. This is essential listening."
WAY too much organ.

I love Wes's playing, but there are too many tracks with organ that overwhelms the sound of the guitar.
On the first few tracks, the organ, honestly, sounds like it belongs in a circus.
There are a few songs that redeem this album, like "Wine and Roses", so I would get it because The Man is playing, but "The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery" is a better choice.
I gave it 4 stars because of, you guessed it, the annoying organ. "Sorry" to all the keyboard players who dig that aspect of this album.
Hope this helps."
Yes, it is boss guitar

"Does Wes Montgomery live up to the boastful title? That's the main question any review should answer. YES. Wes' playing is generally similar to his other jazz-era (vs pop-era) songs. He's jaw-dropping on the faster songs. Wes is good on the slower songs, though he tends to be too nice. "The Incredible Jazz Guitar" is a better album, but "Boss Guitar" should be in every fan's collection. The trio format works out fine. There's a good reason Grant Green made so many albums with organ - it's very compatible with guitar. Mel Rhyne gets to take the first solo in "Dearly Beloved" and in general provides solid playing. Jimmy Cobb is, as usual, fantastic."
