Road Song :

A latin jazz original from Wes with the great B3 player Jimmy Smith on the session. 

Highlight- besides the great solo chorus’s he plays on this, Wes really does some great comping behind the organ solo. In a organ trio setting, the guitar has to step up and provide the harmony for the B3 solos, as the organ player has both hands occupied – left hand, bass; and right hand, soloing. Wes uses a lot of higher voicings that don’t always have the root at the bottom, incorporating a lot of inversions and some passing chords.
