    Wes Montgomery is regarded one of the three founding fathers of the jazz guitar, the other two being Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt.

    Montgomery changed the world of music with his hitchhiker’s thumb, impossible guitar techniques, and sumptuous musical talent. He recorded 20 albums as a leader, many of them best-sellers, and won many readers’ and critics’ polls, as well as three Grammy Nominations and two Grammy Awards.

    Montgomery achieved all this in less than 10 years after his breakthrough at the age of 36, because in another example of the tragically short, meteoric career of many jazz greats, he died in 1968, aged just 45.

    Wes Montgomery lived in Indianapolis almost his entire life, and also died there. On the morning of June 15, 1968, he woke up in his house with chest pains, and soon afterwards collapsed of a heart attack. He was pronounced dead at the local hospital at 10:40am.

    Wes Montgomery’s spirit has also been kept alive by his recordings, which today include a large amount of posthumous releases. Moreover, a new documentary about him, working title Wes Bound is being made end scheduled for release in 2023.

    But most of all Montgomery’s spirit remains alive in the countless players who are influenced by him. Joe Pass once said, “To me, there have been only three real innovators on the guitar—Wes Montgomery, Charlie Christian, and Django Reinhardt.” And the great John Scofield once remarked, “I tried to copy Wes Montgomery, but it was too hard.”

    Just a few of the countless jazz guitarists who have referenced Montgomery include George Benson, Martin Taylor, John Etheridge, Pat Metheny, Larry Coryell, Jim Mullen, and Lee Ritenour. The latter released an album called “Wes Bound” in 1993 and called his son Wesley. Montgomery also has been name-checked by rock and blues players like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Satriani, Steve Howe, Joe Bonamassa, and many, many others.

  • Wes Montgomery - How to make Simple sound Amazing


    This Wes Montgomery Guitar Lesson is breaking down parts of the solo on Four on Six. This version is from the album: The Incredible Jazz Guitar. What makes Wes a great improviser and jazz guitarist is not that he played octaves or chord solos. There are other aspects of his playing that are the reason that we consider him the most important jazz guitarist in modern jazz.

    This video goes over 5 aspects of his playing that you can easily work on in your own guitar solos. I think really defines what is great about his playing.

    Wes Montgomery recorded four on six several times. The most famous recording is probably on the SMoking at the Half Note album. This video is on the Wes Montgomery Solo off the album The Incredible Jazz Guitar with among others Tommy Flanagan.

  • Wes Montgomery - Bumpin on the Sunset


    Rob with Jonathan Brady at Daytona State College.

    Wes was my idol. He was one of the nicest and most humble music giants I've ever met. In person, Wes would play impossible stuff on the guitar. He was a true master of the guitar (single note lines, octaves, and block chords) and was kind enough to give me advice and guidance. I will always be thankful and indebted to Wes Montgomery. This is dedicated to Wes on his birthday, March 6th.

  • Nicas dream - Wes Montgomery 1965.


    Nicas dream - Wes Montgomery 1965
    A nice jazz standerd where the 4/4 jazz is exchanged with latin rhythms was written by master jazz pianist Horace Silver.
    Wes Montgomery is accompanied by a group of young Dutch musicians, probably all still in their early twenties. Although unknown in the larger part of the world these are Pim Jacobs piano, his younger brother Ruud on bass and drummer Han Bennink who can compete with the best in the larger part of that world.

    Wes Montgomery1923 - 1968) Montgomery is often considered the greatest of modern Jazz guitarists.Montgomery toured with Lionel Hampton early in his career, however the combined stress of touring and being away from family brought him back home to Indianaopolis. To support his family of eight, Montgomery worked in a factory from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, then performed in local clubs from 9:00 pm to 2:00 am.
    Instead of using a guitar pick, Montgomery plucked the strings with the fleshy part of his thumb, using downstrokes for single notes and a combination of upstrokes and downstrokes for chords and octaves. This technique enabled him to get a mellow, expressive tone from his guitar. Wes had a corn on his thumb, which gave his sound that point. He would get one sound for the soft parts, and then that point by using the corn. That's why no one will ever match Wes. And his thumb was double-jointed. He could bend it all the way back to touch his wrist, which he would do just to shock people.
    He didn't have a very long to live to enjoy his commercial success, he died of a heart attack at age 45 in 1968
