Wes Montgomery was a prolific recording artist, as this compilation shows. It is the second such collection that Avid has produced - the first being last year's Three Classic Albums. This new double album contains the tracks from Satin Doll - Wes Montgomery - Three Classic Albums: Fingerpickin / Far Wes / The Wes Montgomery Trí LPs and all but one track from Movin' Along. These recordings date from to - the period when Wes was purely a jazz artist, before he widened his audience by becoming almost an easy-listening performer with such hits as Goin' Out of my Head.
Private Property - Judas Priest - Turbo first nine tracks come from The Wes Montgomery Triowhich placed Wes in a coinventional organ trio.
The group mainly plays jazz standards, with two originals Missile Blues and Jingles by Montgomery. Melvin Rhyne was basically a pianist "who had fooled around with organ some", which may explain his delicate, understated playing, which lets us hear Wes Montgomery's eloquent solos.
The opening ' Round Midnight is a perfect example of Wes's ability to vary his sound with generous chords and octaves. This lifts these tracks above the traditional norm for organ trios. The rest of the first CD puts Wes with his talented brothers - pianist Buddy and bassist Monk Montgomery, who - like Wes - were both self-taught. The LP Montgomeryland actually consisted of two sessions recorded in April and Octoberwith different saxists and drummers.
The solos on Old Folks are particularly moving. Movin' Along backs Wes with Cannonball Adderley's rhythm section plus the mellow sound of James Clay on flute and tenor sax. Wes actually plays the bass guitar on Tune-Up and Body and Souldeepening his tone.
All the tracks on these Bob Marley & The Wailers - Burnin have been remastered, although there are still a few fuzzy sections. Like all these Avid compilations, this album is a bargain to snap up before it disappears from the shops. Tony Augarde www. Follow us on Twitter. Yesterdays 3. Whisper Not 5. Ecaroh 6. Satin Doll 7.
