Wes Montgomery So Much Guitar! on LP

Wes Montgomery appeared as leader or co-leader on a dozen Riverside albums, in a wide variety of formats ranging from organ trios to one with full string orchestra. Some of the most rewarding simply placed him in a studio with a superior rhythm section and let him deal with a mixture of ballads, blues, and swingers. This album, his fourth for the label, is a notable example of this straightforward approach. It features the flawless support of Ron Carter (in one of his very first sessions) and Hank Jones, and includes Montgomery's only entirely unaccompanied recording: "While We're Young." 

"So Much Guitar! was recorded in August 1961...The album was a turning point, not only for Wes but for bassist Ron Carter as well," says Marc Myers. "While Montgomery's previous release on Riverside in 1960, The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery, put the guitarist in play with critics, So Much Guitar! caught the ear of poll-voting jazz fans and established him as a soulful force. The album also marked Carter's first opportunity to show his stuff on the fly - transforming the formally trained 24-year-old into a first-call session player. Today he is one of the most prolific recording artists in jazz history."
