Jazz Icons: Wes Montgomery shines a light on one of the most unique and influential guitarists in music history. These beautifully filmed programs from the spring of 1965 feature Wes, in intimate studio settings, leading three different lineups through some of his best-known tunes, including “Four On Six”, “Jingles” and “West Coast Blues”. This rare footage, complete with rehearsals, between-song banter and closeup camera angles, illuminates Wes’s extraordinary musical vocabulary and unconventional picking technique. An in-depth, song-by-song analysis by legendary jazz guitarist Pat Metheny makes this DVD a guitar lover’s dream.

  • Afterword: Watching these video treasures of the magnificent Mr. Montgomery leaves me with a profound sense of awe and appreciation for this twentieth-century genius. There is something magical and transforming about seeing and hearing this kind of excellence done with such apparent ease and enjoyment.

    It’s all here: the beauty, the elegance, the daring, and the sheer guitar mastery of this man who, seemingly, possessed an unbounded imagination and the ability to transform thought into music that remains unequalled today, nearly forty years after his passing.
