Wes Montgomery made more commercial recordings later in his career, but his stature as one of the greatest and most influential of jazz guitarists rests on his Riverside recordings. These featured sympathetic small bands where Montgomery was alternatively surrounded by the empathetic organ trio he led in his native Indianapolis, his talented brothers Buddy and Monk, and the cream of the New York jazz scene. While Milt Jackson and Johnny Griffin make cameo appearances here, the bulk of the program finds Montgomery alone with a rhythm section, with a strong sampling of his innovative thumb-picking and octave techniques and a focus on hard swinging. with Melvin Rhyne, George Brown, Milt Jackson, Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Tommy Flanagan, Percy Heath, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Buddy Montgomery, Monk Montgomery, George Shearing, Victor Feldman, Louis Hayes, Jimmy Cobb, Hank Jones, Ron Carter, Lex Humphries, Kenny Burrell, Johnny Griffin, and others
