They're not kidding with the title of this one – because although the record was only Wes Montgomery's second album as a leader, he was already making plenty of waves with the sound of his guitar!

Classic early Wes Montgomery – 2 Riverside sessions collected on one double LP, Movin' Along and Full House.

Riverside, 1959. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Riverside/OJC, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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. ...

Ah for the genius of the Montgomery Brothers – a sweet combo from the Indy scene that featured Wes Montgomery alongside brothers Monk and Buddy!

Mark MurphyThat's How I Love The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
Given what a freewheeling, open-minded, and lyrical jazz singer Mark Murphy is, it's hard to imagine him really loving "the blues" – and fortunately, most of that love is extended in the title, because the album itself is less of the blues effort that you might think. True, the ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Billie PooleConfessin' The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Good ... $3.99
The title's an apt one, because Billie Poole sings here in a mode that's steeped in styles borrowed strongly from gospel and blues – but delivered more in a jazz-based mode overall! The backing here is one aspect that makes the record especially strong – a quartet with Kenny Burrell on ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A seminal set from Max Roach – the start of his more righteous stretch in jazz, as you might guess from the title of the album! At some level, the record's got a bit of the feel of the post-Clifford Brown Mercury years from Roach – but at another, it's stretching out towards the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – a record that really lives up to its title, as it shows the maturing tenorist really finding his own voice in jazz – a sound that's unlike any other!

A classic pre-soul album by The Staples – very different than their later secular work of the 70s, but every bit as excellent! The album was done in a folksy spirit for Riverside at the start of the 60s – and captures the group in very raw, stripped-down format – with just guitar ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the first American albums from Belgian guitarist and harmonica player Toots Thielemans – a sharp-edged session that brings a new level of jazz into his work!
