Compared to What? Guitarist Wes Montgomery’s flawless approach on So Much Guitar! is supreme!

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 the mixture of ballads, blues, and swingers. So Much Guitar!, his fourth album for the label, is a notable example of this straightforward approach.

Recorded in 1961, 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. An added bonus in this Original Jazz Classics Remasters edition are eight selections recorded that same year during a Montgomery Brothers tour. ~Editorial Reviews | Amazon
