This release contains the complete sessions that produced the classic album "Montgomeryland" (Pacific Jazz Records–PJ-5), pairing the Montgomery Brothers (Wes on guitar, Monk on piano, and Buddy on bass) with the extraordinary saxophonists Harold Land and Pony Poindexter. Six songs from the sessions were later reedited with overdubbed arrangements for horns and strings prepared by the great Gerald Wilson. These tracks have been added here as a bonus.
