吉他手Wes Montgomery可说是爵士音乐史上最伟大的吉他手,他所生存的年代刚好让他衔接由Swing及Bebop传承下来的爵士语汇,并于其后的Hardbop及Postbop中发扬光大。现在屈指可数的爵士吉他大师中,没受到他影响的可说是零!从Jim Hall、George Bensen、Pat Metheny、John Scofield 、Mike Stern、John Abercrombie、Lee Ritenour……,到更年轻的Mark Whitfield、Russell Malone等等,放眼每个人的演奏中,皆有Wes的踪迹,因为他们都曾于他的音乐上下过一番苦功,如果你喜欢以上的吉他手,那么更应该专注在他们的音乐导师---Wes Montgomery上。

Wes Montgomery recorded Boss Guitar at age 38, near the end of his acclaimed Riverside years and just five years before his death. While the records that followed would give him some radio hits (and lose him some fans), the 1963 session was a time when he really could make the bold claim of the album’s title. The previous year, Montgomery had placed fourth in the then influential Playboy Jazz Poll among reader ballots, and had been named “All-Stars’ All-Star Guitar” among voting musicians (an electorate that included Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Paul Desmond, Duke Ellington, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson and Frank Sinatra, among others).
The “musician’s musician” status might be explained by his associations. He had already played with Coltrane and Lionel Hampton at the time, but most of the guitar boss’s career was spent as boss, leading bands and primarily—as on this release—leading organ trios. His finishing behind Chet Atkins, Barney Kessel and Charlie Byrd in the reader’s poll, on the other hand, might be explained by his keeping his home in Indianapolis, rather than moving to one of the coastal hotbeds.

The role of boss carries through to the way he worked with his trio. Montgomery had often employed Mel Rhyne’s organ for his sessions. Drummer Jimmy Cobb had worked with Adderley, Coltrane, Davis, Getz, Gillespie and Billie Holiday. But both were primarily backing musicians, and scarcely solo throughout the eight tracks cut for the album. It is Boss Guitar, front and center. Which isn’t too much of a good thing. Montgomery was a naturally lyrical player, hopping octaves with ease, never sounding out of place but never predictable. He sashays through “Besame Mucho” and strolls along “Days of Wine and Roses.” And while the trio mostly plays popular songs of the day, the two Montgomery compositions here stand out among the rest. “The Trick Bag” is a simmering workout with great interplay among the organ and drums, and “Fried Peas” is an infectious roll.

This issue is newly remastered (with the latest bit of logo-worthy technology) and includes the original liner notes as well as the notes from the 1989 reissue. Two bonus tracks (also on the 1989 version) don’t stray far from the original versions, but do keep the party going a little longer.

此为Original Jazz Classics在1990年Remastered版本,原始版本是Riverside在1963年发行的。Original Jazz Classics和Riverside都是Fantasy Records旗下的厂牌,顾名思义Original Jazz Classics主要就是Remastere一些爵士经典作品。此专辑已经多次再版,最新再版是在今年6月18日,曲目完全相同。
