Wes Montgomery Quartet Live In Belgium 1965

CD (Item 623222) Gambit (Spain), 1965 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Rare work from Wes Montgomery – captured here not just live in Belgium – but also in London and Hamburg as well! The first 10 tracks on the set are from rare TV show performances from Belgium and London in 1965 – and feature Wes grooving with his same combo from the famous Paris recordings from the same year – Harold Mabern on piano, Art Harper on bass, and Jimmy Lovelace on drums. Mabern's presence is especially great, as he gives the tunes a flowing grace that seems to bring out a new spirit in Wes – and the recordings have a joyously dancing feel that's really wonderful. Titles include "The Boy Next Door", "Impressions", "Twisted Blues", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Jingles", and "Full House". The remaining 4 tracks on the CD are from another 1965 European date – but one recorded live in Hamburg with a group that includes Martial Solal on piano, Michel Gaudry on bass, and Ronnie Stephenson on drums – plus a bit of tenor on one track from Johnny Griffin. Solal's piano has a bit of a darker edge than Mabern's here – and the tracks are noticeably longer, with really free-flowing solos from Wes. Titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Twisted Blues", "Blue Monk", and "Four On Six".  © 1996-2024, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
