Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
So much guitar – but never too much, given that Wes was the real master of sound and space, even at this early point in his career! The album's one that tries to break Montgomery from some of his smaller combo albums for Riverside, and pair him with a few bigger names – Hank Jones on ... read more CD

Riverside, 1959. Used ... $8.99
Wes Montgomery's first album as a leader – a relatively obscure set that has him playing in a trio with Indianapolis bandmates Mel Rhyne on organ and Paul Parker on drums – a mode that strongly recalls Montgomery's roots in the Indy scene at the time!

One of Billy's rarest sessions from the 60s – a trio set for Riverside, recorded in early 1960, and a great little session considering how obscure it is!

Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... $9.99
Hmmm . . . Don't know what the "difference" is here, given that the set was one of a number of Duke-inspired sessions of the late 50s, but given that Terry was a big force in the best ones, and that he's working here with some of Duke's best players, we'll give the set a thumbs up! The ... read more CD

Riverside, 1955. Very Good ... $28.99
An early full length album by Randy Weston – one that mostly features tunes by other composers, all given a slightly modern twist at the piano!
