They Say All Music Guide

This CD has 12 “alternate” versions of songs recorded in a variety of settings by guitarist Wes Montgomery during his period with Riverside. Montgomery’s sidemen include tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin, organist Mel Rhyne, vibraphonist Milt Jackson, the flute of James Clay, pianists Wynton Kelly, Buddy Montgomery, and Victor Feldman and (on “Tune Up”) a string section. The two-LP set that this succeeded actually had two additional selections; all of the material is also available in more definitive form on Montgomery’s 12-CD box set. In any case, the mistakes and flaws (such as they are) are minor on these performances, and this CD gives one a good introduction into Montgomery’s early recordings. – Scott Yanow
