A Bit of Friday Jazz

Wes Montgomery - Round Midnight

Wes Montgomery developed his unique thumb technique as a response to complaints about noisy practising! Abandoning the pick enabled him to play much more softly. Eventually this became his hallmark sound. Wes was hugely influential and not just on jazz guitarists, Jimmy Hendrix was a big fan. And Lyttelton is still going strong,
42 years after this was recorded!
