Wes Montgomery an early member of my jazz music collection


Through the years, I have always enjoyed jazz. I guess it started when I started listening to music, I loved Al Hirt’s “Java”, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, and the Baja Marimba Band. Then I found REAL jazz! First through the guitar of Wes Montgomery, and then the Hammond organ of Jimmy Smith and finally, Miles and Monk. Over the last 10 or 15 years or s,o the music of Kenny Burrell, Gary Burton, Freddie Hubbard and Oscar Peterson and others has made its way into my music library. Last year though, I really started to listen to more and more jazz and started to discover the next generation of great jazz musicians. So join me, as I explore the amazing world of JAZZ!
