Jazz For Beginners-Wes Montgomery

We can't talk about great jazz without talking about Wes Montgomery.  The leader in jazz guitar Wes Montgomery is probably Mac's favorite jazz musician. Beboppers listening to Coltrane and Davis at the time weren't expecting anyone to come on the scene and play guitar the way Montgomery was able to. He changed the standard for jazz guitar and is still considered a jazz legend. Take a listen and see what you think.

Bumpin on Sunset, so smooth
