Smokin at The Half Note - Wynton Kelly Trio & Wes Montgomery

Wynton Kelly Trio

Wes Montgomery

Label: Verve V/V6-8633

Recorded: June 1965 at the Half-Note, New York City; and September 22, 1965 at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, USA.



Wes Montgomery – Guitar

Wynton Kelly – Piano

Paul Chambers – Bass

Jimmy Cobb – Drums


Recording Engineer: Rudy Van Gelder.


Medium: Vinyl LP at 33.3 RPM.


This is an excellent live date of outstanding music-making by some of the very best musicians of the Golden Age of Jazz. 


The interplay between the guitar and piano consistently showcase the two soloists’ mastery of their instruments. The bassist and the drummer were the foundation of Miles Davis’s great quintet that recorded, among other great works, Kind of Blue.


This is jazz music at its best. An essential recording. Listen via Youtube to Smokin' at The Half Note
