This is timeless music that has inspired innumerable jazz guitarists and aficionados. In fact, jazz guitar great Pat Metheny has said, "I learned to play listening to Wes Montgomery's Smokin' at the Half Note." Metheny additionally said that the solo on "If You Could See Me Now" is his favorite of all time. This legendary session was recorded at a New York nightclub. It captures Montgomery at the height of his improvisational powers. Many consider it the best performance on record by one of the most inventive guitarists in jazz history. Highlights include the Miles Davis opener, "No Blues" and the following track, Tadd Dameron's "If You Could See Me Now." And the album's versions of "Unit 7" and "Four on Six" have helped to establish these songs as jazz standards.Wynton Kelly, pianoWes Montgomery, guitarPaul Chambers, bassJimmy Cobb, drums.
