Elements of his style are discernable in many of today's finest players. This book provides, for the first time, a true understanding of Wes' octave playing so that it can be better appreciated by jazz enthusiasts and anyone interested in the electric guitar.

Product Description:

Wes Montgomery was unquestionably the most significant jazz guitarist to emerge during the 1960s. During the '70s and '80s he had, like Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt before him, become a major influence on other guitar players. Elements of his style are discernable in many of today's finest players. Although many musicians acknowledge that Wes was one of the finest guitar players of the 20th century, there has been until now a lack of detailed biographical and analytical material. Through this book, guitarists and jazz guitar enthusiasts everywhere will fully understand and appreciate Wes's achievements, so often narrowly categorized as the development of octave playing. The book features over 70 photographs and illustrations, many previously unpublished.
