WES MONTGOMERY PAIRED WITH HAROLD LAND AND PONY POINDEXTER

4 STARS DOWN BEAT original review: MONTGOMERYLAND:

Rarely does an LP rate the four-star bit for the playing of just one musician on the album, but this one does. The man who does this is the phenomenal Wes Montgomery. Yes phenomenal. I feel that Montgomery is not just the best thing to happen to jazz guitar since Charlie Christian, as Ralph Gleason Msays, but the best thing to happen to jazz guitar, period! This album can be summed up in three words: Wes Montgomery, yeah! (Don DeMicheal)
