Wes Montgomery — Wes Montgomery Trio (aka A Dynamic New Jazz Sound) ... LP 28.99

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! If you only know the later, famous Wes Montgomery with bigger charts, you'll be surprised to hear him here in a cooking little combo – the kind of group that made Mel Rhyne a local Hammond hero in Indy, although it seemed to take decades for him to get any sort of larger recognition. The groove is straight and simple, but the real charm is Wes' chromatic lines on guitar – already quite distinctive among his contemporaries, and allowed ample room to express their voice in this setting. Titles include "Ecorah", "Missile Blues", "Too Late Now", "Jingles", and "Whisper Not". CD features 2 bonus tracks!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Fusion
Riverside, Early 60s. Used
A pretty darn important album for Wes – as it was his first session with the sort of larger arrangements that would later make him huge! Although Montgomery was mostly recording for Riverside in small combos, this session has him playing in front of larger backings by Jimmy Jones – not ... CD

Wes Montgomery

Jazz Guitar
Laser Light, 1965. Used
Great live material from Wes Montgomery – very nicely recorded, from a live show that took place on March 27, 1965, in Paris! The group features Harold Mabern on piano, Art Harper on bass, and Jimmy Lovelace on drums – and the overall approach of the record is quite different than some ... CD

Wes Montgomery

Boss Guitar
Riverside/OJC, 1963. Used
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 ... CD

Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used
Ah for the genius of the Montgomery Brothers – a sweet combo from the Indy scene that featured Wes Montgomery alongside brothers Monk and Buddy! Wes is on guitar, natch, Buddy plays piano, Monk bass, and Bobby Thomas joins the group on drums – all grooving in a style that's a bit like ... CD

Booker Ervin

Song Book
Prestige/OJC, 1964. Used
A wonderfully warm session from tenor legend Booker Ervin – maybe not as experimental as some of Booker's other dates for Prestige Records in the 60s – but a really wonderful record that fully explores the deep tones of his Texas tenor, and still lets him come off with a bit of an edge! ... CD

Wes Montgomery Trio

Portrait Of Wes
Riverside/OJC, Early 60s. Used
Early work by Wes – cut with his early trio that included the wonderful Melvin Rhyne on organ! The sound is tight and freer than some of Wes' later recordings – a bit more in the pocket, too, showing the roots of the Indianapolis scene from which Wes was just emerging at the time. ... CD

Mundell Lowe

Mundell Lowe Quartet
Riverside/OJC, 1955. Used
A great record from a great guitarist – one of Mundell Lowe's best small group sessions of the 50s, and a record with a wonderful sound overall! One of the key factors in the record's success is the presence of pianist Dick Hyman – who plays organ as well as piano here (plus celeste on ... CD
