Well we have a lot in common when it comes to music.

 

Love all these choices as well as much of the early British rock you listed in the prior post.

 

That Wes Live 1965 is the Paris recording, right? Wow, Wes was so great that he could play all those very difficult riffs live just like the studio recordings without one flaw as well as adding new improvisations. The vast majority of jazz guitar players I know all agree no one compares to Wes. So relaxed but at the same time jamming hard!

Thank you, james. I'm not an afficionado, but I do have a great appreciation for jazz in all forms - especially imrovisational. That video is a small collection of Wes Montgomery's three performances in three locales:

 

*Live in Holland - 1965*

 

I Love Blues

Nica's Dream

The End Of A Love Affair (Rehearsal)

The End Of A Love Affair

 

*Live in Belgium - 1965*

 

Impressions

Twisted Blues

Here's That Rainy Day

Jingles

The Girl Next Door

 

*Live in England - 1965*

 

Four On Six

Full House

Here's That Rainy Day

Twisted Blues

West Coast Blues

Interesting, while all in Europe none in Paris. I wonder if those are available on a CD like the 1965 live in Paris I have? I'll have to check that out but most of the songs listed are included in the Live in Paris CD but Nica's Dream would be nice to hear since I have never heard Wes play that and it is typically done in a Latin style.

 

What was great about that 1965 European tour is that Wes had 'sold out' by than and release very pop type records. This was required by list record label since that is what sold in the USA. So when he played in the USA he featured mostly pop tunes (but even Wes playing The Beatles or other pop tunes was nice but not really my bag). But overseas they wanted to here the straight ahead tunes.

 

Hey, even knowing about these jazz recording is somewhat unique. I find this type of jazz to be even less known than studio-era movies! But it will live on even if only carried on by a few.

I don't know the background on these performances; whether they were part of one tour or pieced together from several. Considering the changes in musicians it's probably the latter.

 

I enjoy the conversations, especially on Nica's Dream where Wes is describing it to his drummer who, evidently, was not familiar with the tune. Wes keeps looking over his shoulder at him just to make sure they're hooked up. He says something like, "It starts in 4, then Latin, then 4 swing then..".. something like that. I love that kind of stuff and am used to playing in this manner. When you hook up it's magic, then you begin to feed off each other and the conversation begins :)

I prefer the straight up tunes, myself. I was going to mention along those lines that the only thing we have close to this is Pat Metheny. I gave him a try in the 70s but it just didn't work for me - too structured.

If anyone were to look in the cd player in my car-- it'd be very confusing. I have a six-disc CD player in my car (too old school for a mp3 jack apparently) and I have:

 

1) Rat Pack Christmas (I haven't swapped the CD out yet apparently)

2) Judy Garland Greatest Hits

3) Fred Astaire Cocktail Hour Disc 1

4) Fred Astaire Cocktail Hour Disc 2

5) New Pearl Jam album

6) Nirvana "Nevermind"

Yea that is an interesting mix. I now have a NANO so I have all my songs with me at all times.

 

But when I had a 6 CD player, I would have one Sinatra, one Beatles, one Kinks, and 3 bebop jazz CD (usually from 1953 - 1958, the period of jazz I like best).

I have a Nano too; but I keep forgetting to take it out of my husband's car-- he has a fancy car that you can plug the Mp3 player into a jack in the car and have it play through the stereo. I, on the other hand, have to use a FM Tuner and find an "empty" radio station and play my music through that.

 

I like your mix with the Sinatra and Beatles. I usually also have a Desi Arnaz album in the mix as well. A while ago, I switched things up, and I think it's just about time I do it again.
