Sunday Jazz: The incredible Wes Montgomery
Man, all these Sunday Jazz pieces and not one about Wes Montgomery? Well that has to change now. Here’s a great clip of Wes performing one of my favorite numbers, “Four On Six,” from 1965. The film quality is superb and you can really see how he employed his unique thumb technique.
Here he’s backed by Rick Laird (bass), Stan Tracey (piano), and Jackie Dougan (drums). Enjoy!
