Remember - A Tribute to Wes Montgomery
by Pat Martino
Released: Apr 2006
Label: Blue Note Records
Wes Montgomery is the most emulated jazz guitarist of all time, yet jazz is supposed to be about having your own signature style. Here, modern guitar legend Pat Martino gets it right by paying tribute to Wes, while rarely sounding like him. Sometimes, as on "Road Song," Martino emulates the Montgomery original at the start, but then explodes into his own galaxy, once the soloing begins.
