Review: Wes Montgomery - Full House

montgomery_full_house.jpgI just purchased this CD a few weeks ago and have finally had some time to really give it a good listen. As always, Wes's guitar and method are clean and straight-forward, which is something I have come to expect from the master.

Overall, there are 9 tracks. Tracks as follows:

1. Full House
2. I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face
3. Blue 'N' Boogie
4. Cariba
5. Come Rain Or Come Shine (Take 1)
6. Come Rain Or Come Shine (Take 2)
7. S.O.S. (Take 3)
8. S.O.S. (Take 2)
9. Born To Be Blue

This 1962 lineup is incredible, as this live album pairs Montgomery with tenor Johnny Griffin and the Wynton Kelly Trio (Wynton on piano, Jimmy Cobb on drums, and Paul Chambers on the bass). The players are on fire on this one, and their improvisational chemistry really shines. This is one live Montgomery album every jazz enthusiast should own.

Happy sounds,
