This is the record that started it all. When Cannonball and Nat Adderley heard Wes Montgomery in an Indianapolis after-hours club in the fall of 1959, Cannonball decided that this remarkable talent had to be exposed to the world. He then not so much persuaded, as ordered, Riverside's Orrin Keepnews to record Montgomery. Soon, Keepnews flew to Indianapolis, listened, and signed Montgomery before the night ended. At the age of 37, this mild, teetotaling father of six was on his way to becoming the most influential jazz guitarist since Charlie Christian. What we hear on Montgomery's appropriately titled first album is essentially what the Adderleys and Keepnews heard, Wes at the helm of his trio playing his thrilling, melodic single-note lines, revolutionary octaves, and block chords. From henceforth Montgomery continually astonished the jazz world with his unrivaled combination of technique, musicianship, and soul.
