O’s Notes: This is a fine collection of songs recorded by the legendary jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery live“In Paris“during 1965. It was previously available as a bootleg but Resonance worked with the Office Of French Radio and Television (OFRT) to capture the original tapes. This package is remixed for better sound quality and accompanied by excellent liner notes to further document the performance including comments from Harold Mabern the pianist on the recording! Arthur Harper (b), Jimmy Griffin (sax) and Jimmy Lovelace (d) round out the band. These sessions in Paris were a part of a tour that introduced Montgomery to Europe just prior to his explosion onto pop charts in the US. Two discs and ten songs later we’re still smiling!
