WES MONTGOMERY

Wes Montgomery’s 1967 album “A Day In The Life” was number one on the Billboard jazz chart.  Wes was born John Leslie Montgomery in Indianapolis, IN on March 6, 1923. His early career included his brothers Monk and Buddy.  Wes on guitar, Monk on bass and Buddy on piano. Wes as a guitarist had a great influence on modern jazz.

Unfortunately, we lost a great jazz guitarist at the age of 45 years old.  He woke up on June 15, 1968 and told his wife he didn’t feel good and collapsed and died of a heart attack.
