Wynton Kelly Trio with Wes Montgomery Smokin’ At The Half Note on 200g 45rpm 2LP

Cut from the Original Analog Master Tapes by George Marino at Sterling Sound 

This is timeless music that has inspired innumerable jazz guitarists and aficionados. In fact, jazz guitar great Pat Metheny has said, "I learned to play listening to Wes Montgomery's Smokin' At The Half Note." Metheny additionally said that the solo on "If You Could See Me Now" is his favorite of all time.

This legendary session was recorded at the Half Note nightclub in New York in 1965. It captures Montgomery at the height of his improvisational powers alongside Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb. Many consider it the best performance on record by one of the most inventive guitarists in jazz history.

Highlights include the Miles Davis opener, "No Blues" and the following track, Tadd Dameron's "If You Could See Me Now" while the album's versions of "Unit 7" and "Four On Six" have helped to establish these songs as jazz standards.

"...these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding." - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online - November/December 2011
