Wynton Kelly Trio & Wes MontgomerySmokin' At The Half Note ... CD
Verve, 1965. Used ... $3.99
One of the greatest 60s recordings from the Wyton Kelly Trio – thanks to some wonderful guest work from guitarist Wes Montgomery! Montgomery's working here in a gusty, rootsy style that recalls his best soul jazz sides from the earlier years – and which have a feel that's quite different than his later, more largely-arranged work for Verve. The Kelly Trio is in perfect form – with Wynton's heavy left hand leading the group on the piano, and superb rhythm backing from the team of Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb. Tracks are longish, with some nice solos – and include the 13 minute original "No Blues", plus "If You Could See Me Now", "Unit 7", "Four On Six" and "What's New". CD

Wes MontgomeryBoss Guitar ... LP
Riverside/OJC, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
Early greatness from Wes Montgomery – and a session that's got a gritty edge that takes Wes back to his Indianapolis roots! The album's one of the few of the time to feature the unsung Hammond hero Mel Rhyne – a player who worked with Wes at his start, but has only gotten stronger acclaim in recent decades as part of his comeback. Rhyne's a key force in the record – working alongside Montgomery's guitar and the drums of Jimmy Cobb – in a loose, open trio that has Mel participating as strongly in the rhythms as he does in the solo side of the album. Titles include a few Montgomery originals – "The Trick Bag" and "Fried Pies" – plus the tunes "Besame Mucho", "Dearly Beloved", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Canadian Sunset", "The Breeze & I", and "For Heaven's Sake".

Billy Taylor with Wes Montgomery & Joe WilliamsGrand Night For Swinging (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Navy Swings/SSJ (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $22.99
Pianist Billy Taylor, working here in a really unique setting – a broadcast performance that has guitarist Wes Montgomery joining the trio for the whole session – plus vocals from Joe Williams on the second half! The core groove is great enough – given that Ben Tucker is on bass and Grady Tate is on drums – and the use of Wes' guitar next to Taylor's punctuated piano lines makes for a really great sound – a bit different than you'd hear on albums by either player as a leader. Adding in Williams really makes things special – especially since Joe didn't often work with a small group like this – and titles include "Capricious", "A Bientot", "The More I See You", "Freedom", "Paraphrase", "Until I Met You", "I Won't Cry Anymore", "All My Life", and "Alone Together".

World Pacific, Late 50s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last session that The Mastersounds ever cut as a group – and a strangely compelling montage of tracks from the musical Kismet. Brothers Buddy and Monk Montgomery are joined here by brother Wes – then an emerging star on guitar, and a strong addition to the set, one who expands the sound past the usual exotic chamber groove laid down by the combo. Titles include "Fate", "Olive Tree", "This Is My Beloved", "Not Since Nineveh", and "Stranger In Paradise". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, Mid 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A collection of sides cut in the mid 60s by Wes during his association with Verve. Culled from the albums Movin' Wes, Bumpin', Goin' Out Of My Head and Tequila, these numbers all feature the larger arrangements that gave those albums a richer sound than his small group recordings, though Wes' soulful playing shines over top. Arrangements are by Oliver Nelson, Johnny Pate, Claus Ogerman and Don Sebesky and the tracks are 'Tequila", "Movin' Wes (part 1)", "End Of A Love Affair", "Naptown Blues", "Con Alma", "Goin' Out of My Head", "How Insensitive (Insensatez)", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Caravan" and "Bumpin' On Sunset".

✨✧ Wes MontgomeryBumpin' ... LP
Verve, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible album from Wes Montgomery – and the beginning of a whole new sound for his guitar! Wes moves away from his small combo soul jazz roots on the set – and hits a wonderfully sweet new vibe with larger arrangements from Don Sebesky – bigger backdrops that fill in the space between the notes wonderfully, yet still leave plenty of space for Montgomery to really open up and do his thing! Sebesky's got a perfect sense of timing on the record – and many tunes have a subtle sort of groove – one that pushes Wes' solos beautifully, and has them open up in chromatic tones that are simply mindblowing. This is the start of Montgomery's really classic years in the 60s jazz mainstream – and titles include the classic "Bumpin", plus "Mi Cosa", "Musty", "Con Alma", and "Tear It Down".

✨✧ Wes MontgomeryCalifornia Dreaming ... LP
Verve, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone classic on Verve! Back in the 60s, Wes Montgomery must have been California Dreamin – because by the time of this LP, he'd come a long way from his Indiana roots – and had used the best part of the hip west coast scene to add a lot to his style – fuller rhythms and tighter production that never dampened his sound, and instead really let him open up into a whole new range of sounds! As with some of his other albums on Verve, Montgomery plays warmly chromatic riffs over dark jazzy backings by Don Sebesky – and although tracks are short, Wes gets a lot into his solos on the set – a masterful approach that was almost better in a tighter setting than a looser one! Titles include "Sun Down", "Without You", "Sunny", "Green Peppers", "Mr Walker", and "Winds Of Barcelona". LP, Vinyl record album

Late work from Wes – recorded in the sublime CTI format that was really breaking down boundaries at the end of his career! Don Sebesky scored these great backings for the set – jazzy and easily swinging, featuring players like Herbie Hancock, Hank Jones, Grady Tate, Ray Barretto, Stan Webb, and strings – and Wes solos over the top in an incredibly laidback, warmly chromatic style. Titles include "I'll Be Back", "Road Song", "Yesterday", "Serene", "Green Leaves Of Summer", and "Fly Me To The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early greatness from Wes Montgomery – a real cooker that features the great Mel Rhyne on organ, coming out of the same Indy hub as Wes – plus Jimmy Cobb on drums! The bass-less trio format burns nicely throughout – coming across with a bit more soul jazz burn than on Wes' later sides, that small combo that came from Montgomery's earlier roots. Titles include couple of Montgomery originals – "The Trick Bag" and "Fried Pies" – plus the tunes "Besame Mucho", "Dearly Beloved", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Canadian Sunset", "The Breeze & I", and "For Heaven's Sake". This is a repackaged version of the Boss Guitar LP, issued when Riverside was briefly owned by ABC, in the late 60s. LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent meeting between 2 mighty talents who rarely recorded together! Oliver Nelson did the arrangements and leads a big band, but the real focus is on Jimmy and Wes' solos, which are given a lot of room to roam in long tracks like "James & Wes", "Night Train", and "Down By The Riverside". Nice hard playing from Jimmy, with that great tone that he was getting in the mid 60's, and lots of very clean Hammond lines on his solos. LP, Vinyl record album

Nat AdderleyWork Song ... CD
Riverside, 1960. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
When it comes to soul jazz, you can't get any more classic than this! The title was one of the biggest jazz hits of the 60s – covered by countless other artists, but presented here in all its original brilliance in a group led by its composer, a young Nat Adderley! At the time of the record, Nat was making plenty big waves in the combo of brother Cannonball – but this set has him stepping out strongly as a leader – borrowing Bobby Timmons, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes from Cannon's group – and also adding in Wes Montgomery on guitar and additional bass and cello work from Keeter Betts and Percy Heath. The tracks are all tight as a drum – and the record features seminal versions of "Work Song" and "Sack O Woe" – as well as the numbers "Scrambled Eggs", "Pretty Memory", and "Fallout" – all great! CD

Verve, 1967. Very Good ... $7.99
Not "blues" like you might expect from the title – but a hip batch of tracks that has Kenny soloing over arrangements by Don Sebesky, playing in a warmly chromatic mode that's similar to the work that Wes Montgomery also cut with Sebesky. The tracks all have a nicely angular quality – Kenny taking care of the frontline solos with ease, and Sebesky letting the band fall behind him in broad washes of color, tone, and mood. Titles include "Sausalito Nights", "Were You There", "Burning Spear", "Angel Eyes", "The Preacher", and "The Common Ground". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray CrawfordSmooth Groove ... CD
Candid (Germany), 1961. Used ... $11.99
One of the only albums ever cut as a leader by soul jazz guitarist Ray Crawford – a contemporary of Grant Green and Wes Montgomery, but a player who's hardly ever gotten his due! This rare date was originally recorded for the short-lived Candid label back in 1961, but was only issued two decades later as part of the Candid revival – a fact that makes the album even more noteworthy! The set's got a really solid groove that reminds us a fair bit of Grant Green's best early 60s work for Blue Note – as Ray's playing in a tight, single-line format on most numbers – working with a very hip group that includes Johnny Coles on trumpet, Cecil Payne on baritone sax, Junior Mance on piano, Ben Tucker on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums. Tracks are all nice and long – very open, with plenty of solo space – and are all originals by Crawford as well. Titles include "Smooth Groove", "I Knew Prez", "Impossible", "Miss April", and "The Compendium Suite". Shoulda been a 60s classic – but at least we've finally gotten it released! CD

Freddie GreenMr. Rhythm ... CD
Koch/RCA, 1956. Used ... $15.99
A long overdue classic from Count Basie's excellent 50s guitarist! Freddie was one of the strongest single-line players of the 50s – coming to prominence in the years before Grant Green and Wes Montgomery completely transformed jazz guitar, but never getting as much chance as those greats to record under his own name. This rare 1956 set is one of the few that Freddie ever did on his own, and it's a nicely laidback small group romp, with players that include Al Cohn, Joe Newman, Nat Pierce, and Milt Hinton. Tracks are short, with a focus on Green's guitar on the solos. Titles include "Down For Double", "Free & Easy", "Date With Ray", "Swinging Back", and "Feed Bag". CD

Calvin KeysStandard Keys ... CD
Life Force Jazz, 1992. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Incredible work from guitarist Calvin Keys – a record that's quite different from his 70s recordings for the Black Jazz label, or his recent funkier sets for Wide Hive – but which is a stunning set from a straight jazz basis! The album's recorded live, and features Keys' guitar in a very mellow trio format – one that has Calvin really taking the lead strongly, and often playing unaccompanied for larger parts of the tracks. The tunes are all quite long, and Calvin's work on the strings is nothing short of amazing – more sensitive, soulful, and precise than we ever would have expected from his other records – on a level that, because of his hollow-body sound, almost makes him come across like a gentler version of Wes Montgomery. Titles include "Marella", "Abdullah", "Blues On The Corner", "Once I Loved", and "Little Sunflower". CD

Les McCannInvitation To Openness – The Jazz & Soul Photography Of Les McCann 1960 to 1980 (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... $28.99 39.99
An incredible lost side of the many talents of the great Les McCann – the ultra-hip pianist, singer, and jazz composer who we've loved for years! This book showcases McCann's lesser-known skills as a photographer – a subtle shutterbug who would often take pictures in the same spaces he was performing – gaining backstage access to other musicians, and also shooting them in performance as well – all with a sensitivity that goes far beyond the usual music journalist photographs! The candid shots are especially wonderful – and capture various musical legends in ways we've never seen before – often a bit tuned-down, and much more down to earth than you might expect. The heavy book features a wealth of subjects – including Stevie Wonder, Sonny Rollins, Tina Turner, Ben Webster, Grover Washington Jr, Donald Byrd, Muhammad Ali, Average White Band, James Coburn, John Coltrane, Bill Cosby, Paul Desmond, Angie Dickenson, Eugene McDaniels, Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Pops Staples, Wilson Pickett, Lou Rawls, Jesse Jackson, Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin, Redd Foxx, Duke Ellington, Dexter Gordon, Dizzy Gillespie, and dozens more. 200 pages, hardcover, oversized, and filled with black and white images!

Monk MontgomeryReality (with bonus track) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A really sweet set from bassist Monk Montgomery – the Indy jazz legend who first made big waves with his brothers Wes and Buddy in the 50s – still sounding great here on a funky album for Philly International! The album's mostly instrumental, but done in the same great groove as the label's big soul hits of the time – a mode that really works well for the grounding that Monk's bass solos bring to the whole thing – "singing" in this voice that's nice and deep, and which really comes as a surprise! Bobby Martin produced, and also helped Monk with the arrangements – and while the album's definitely got a jazzy vibe, it works equally well as a 70s funky soul instrumental set. Titles include an excellent funky instrumental called "Bump De Bump", plus Bill Cosby's "I Love You Camille", and the tracks "Reality", "Close Your Face", "Girl Talk", "Little Os", and "Sippin & Tippin". CD features a bonus single version of "Reality". CD

One of Phil Upchurch's best records – and one that's a no-nonsense batch of funky instrumentals that feature some really great guitar! Phil's dropped the Hendrix fuzz of some of his Cadet sides of the late 60s – and instead, he's working in a stretched-out chromatic mode that has bits of Wes Montgomery and George Benson – but which also has some of the more soulful undercurrents of the great O'Donel Levy! The album's nicely laidback, and never too slick or smooth – and other players include Tennyson Stephens on Fender Rhodes, Lucy Scott on bass, Steve Cobb on drums, and Derf Reklaw on percussion. Titles include "Another Funky Tune", "I Still Love You", "Washing Machine", "Sitar Soul", and "Keep On Tripping". CD

Mostly trio work here from guitarist Fred Woodard, but a set that features guest tenor and trombone on one number too! Woodard always shines in a trio setting – managing to do a lot in the open space, with a confident groove that echoes traditions of Grant Green or Wes Montgomery – and the rhythms are often gentle enough to allow Fred's groove on guitar to lead most of the proceedings. Other players include Herman Hampton on bass, Peter Barr on drums, Kurtis Rivers on tenor, and Andre Hayward on trombone – on titles that include "Surfin The Changes", "Stretching/Rebirth Of Slick", "1715", "Besame Mucho", "Now", and "Miss Ann's Tempo".

✨✧ Brian Auger & The TrinityDefinitely What/Open (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atco/Fuel 2000, 1969. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Brian Auger double-header – two great albums back to back in a single set! First up is Definitely What – Brian Auger's first album away from singer Julie Driscoll – and a landmark batch of funky organ work that made big waves in both the rock and jazz worlds at the time! Auger's really stretching out here – getting past the simple R&B of his roots, and going into a bubbling funky style that's clearly touched by chromatic inspirations from Wes Montgomery and Jimmy Smith – both of whom are referenced by some of the song structures on the set. The album's filled with killer organ-based instrumentals – some lean and stripped down, others full and rich – and all of them coming across with a richly soulful sound that you'd hardly expect from a member of the British rock scene! Titles include "Day In The Life", "Red Beans", "Definitely What!", and his classic "Bumpin' On Sunset". Open is great stuff – one of the amazing early albums from the team of Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger – kind of a next-generation to the Brit beat group sound of the mid 60s – one that moves beyond simple R&B modes, to bring in more sophisticated soul and jazz touches! Driscoll's vocals are amazing – some of the boldest belted out in the British scene at the time – and Auger's Hammond work really cooks throughout – at a level that easily makes him one of the best UK organists to hit the scene, amidst some very heady company in the 60s. There's a few bluesy moments, but our favorites are the funky ones – especially the group's reading of "Season Of The Witch", which is tremendous. Other cuts include "In & Out", "Black Cat", "Goodbye Jungle Telegraph", and "Break It Up". CD also features 5 bonus tracks – "Red Beans & Rice (parts 1 & 2)", "Save Me", "I've Gotta Go Now", "This Wheel's On Fire", and "The Road To Cairo". CD

Totally wicked guitar work from the mighty O'Donel Levy – easily one of the hippest talents to ever work for the Groove Merchant label! Levy's got a sound here that's a bit like Wes Montgomery on some of his late 60s sides, but also a fair bit funkier overall – a style that's steeped in soul and schooled on advancements in the 70s generation of funk fusion and blacksploitation soundtracks. Backings are relatively large – arranged by Manny Album, with players who include Charles Covington on organ and electric piano and Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet. Tracks include covers like "I Wanna Be Where You Are", "People Make the World Go Round", and "Maiden Voyage" – plus some nice originals, like "Dawn Of A New Day" and "Baa Waa". CD

The album title might fool you into thinking that Bobby's working in Charlier Parker territory here – but he's not, and is instead grooving in a mellow and soulful west coast mode – working with a totally great group that includes Ralph Moore on tenor and soprano sax, Buddy Montgomery on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The whole album's a magical picture of tone, color, and light – but the especially standout track is "Sierra" – a totally killer number that has these arch angles and edges that rival the best sounds heard on Hutcherson's Montara album!
