Original Down Beat review: The Wes Montgomery Trio “It seems unquestionable that Montgomery is the very best guitarist to arrive on the scene in a decade and may very well end up ranking with all of the great players on his instrument. He has an electric quality, that special gift of making whatever he does come alive, that marks the true artist. On the basis of Montgomery's work this would be a five-star LP. Both the drummer and organist are good and both are promising.” (Ralph J. Gleason)
