This compilation brings together six tracks that had previously been available only on Wes Montgomery: The Complete Riverside Recordings boxed set, and three unissued alternates from a Montgomery Brothers Fantasy date. Featured performers include tenor sax great Johnny Griffin, the definitive rhythm team of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb, and, of course, Buddy and Monk Montgomery. These rare alternates serve to underline Wes's position at the top of the modern guitar class. No diehard fan will want to miss his blistering improvisations on the two previously unreleased versions of "Stella by Starlight," where Wes is truly "dangerous," soaring to heights that no subsequent guitarist has ever managed to attain.

with Buddy Montgomery, Monk Montgomery, Bobby Thomas, Johnny Griffin, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb, Melvin Rhyne, George Brown, Paul Humphrey
