5 Great Wes Montgomery Recordings



Jazz Guitarist and Educator David Frackenpohl weighs in on his top 5 Wes Montgomery tracks – and why.

Naptown Blues:

This is an F blues original by Wes with great big band backing (arr. by Oliver Nelson).

Highlight – in chorus’s three and four Wes does a one man call and response between a two note octave riff and chord punches voiced in a lower register then the riff. This is a concept that can work well when playing solo jazz guitar – a good way to add texture to a chorus or two.
