Blues For Peace

Wes Montgomery, Jazz Guitarist

Wes Montgomery

Wes Montgomery heard Charlie Christian play "Solo Flight" jazz guitar solo with the Benny Goodman and bought an electric guitar, determined to play jazz. Wes Montgomery played by ear, used his thumb versus a pick and turned any song into a swingin' jazz guitar improvisation.

A welder by trade, Wes Montgomery found just the right notes, chords & octaves to weld his jazz solos seamlessly with big bands, organ trio's, string quartets and jazz quartets including John Coltrane at Newport. Check out albums with brohthers Buddy and Monk Montgomery - "So Much Guitar" with Ray Bartetto and his albums with Jimmy Smith and his live "Willow Weep for Me" album with Wynton Kelly on piano. Wes put his heart in every sensuous note he played...
