Pat Metheny on Wes Montgomery
I had a record I talk about a lot, Smokin’ at the Half Note. It’s one of the most famous of Wes’s records.
No Blues up
I think that there’s a normal trajectory that many young musicians follow, which is you have a few favorite players, and you know, you emulate them to a degree, best of your ability early on, and Wes was the guy for me.
No Blues again
