3 COMPLETE ALBUMS ON 3 CD SET Plus BONUS TRACKS

This 3-CD set presents all of the studio recordings made in a quartet format by the Montgomery Brothers, featuring Wes on guitar, Buddy on piano or vibes, and Monk on bass, backed by different drummers. Contained on this release are the complete contents of the classic original albums "The Montgomery Brothers" (Fantasy 3308), "Groove Yard" (Riverside RLP 9-362), and "The Montgomery Brothers in Canada" (Fantasy 3323), plus all other existing music from those dates. We have also included two isolated quartet sides (“All the Things You Are” and the studio version of “Summertime”), which were taped in 1957 and 1959, respectively, for albums that featured larger bands on the rest of the tracks.

As a bonus, we have added another quartet side from 1957, “Finger Pickin’”, on which Buddy Montgomery was replaced by another pianist, and the Montgomery Brothers’ complete 1961 extended live quartet date at Jorgies.
