Tracklisting & More Information

"Widely considered one of Wes Montgomery's best sessions, and by some, one of the best jazz guitar recordings of all time, Smokin' was an easy choice to include in Analogue Productions Verve series. ... this new mastering from the late George Marino at Sterling Sound cleans up the sound as never before. ... this is an essential performance, in the best-sounding version available." —Recording = 8.5/10; Music = 10/10 — Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 103

"...these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono records are incredible treasures of sonic beauty. I'd definitely ask Santa for the whole set, or, if you want to cherry pick, the most classic titles. Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen!" Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers' Choice Award - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011
