When I was a teenager trying to be an adult, I fell in love with Wes Montgomery. For me it was more than just a teenage fancy. I felt genuine appreciation for his excellent style. His gentle sound caressed my ears on many nights as I drifted into a melodic slumber. Hail To The King Of Jazz Guitar! Although this documentary contains some color photos, it also contains some quality black and whites.

Indeed, as a teen, I was turned on to Wes' stuff from CTI Records. A Day in the Life, Down Here on the Ground; these were my introductions to being jazz 'hip'. The documentary presented by you sums it all up! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Simon. I love SoleManKing for starting this page. I am enjoying the stimulating interaction. Very educational.
Wes does something to me---A Day In The Life? I was through---it put me into Wes Land to this day!
Excellent post Vicky!

Didn't learn about him 'til late in my adult life. Beautiful soulful simplicity. Lyrical Genious. Music created from the spirit of a man for the spirit of man. I LOVE WES! I've found several vinyl originals from Wes over the years and they are part of my treasured collection. I have one verve/EMI, London release that was released in 1967, "Wes Montgomery - California Dreaming" ... It has a young blonde chick on the cover...this was an attempt I'm sure to appeal to a wider European (London) and American audience. There were still so many who would not accept nor support the idea of a "Negro/Colored" face on the front cover. Wes does appear on the back in a black and white photo (keeping with our theme here), with a great infectious smile!

How North Korea Could Start World War III: A War Between Russia and America

How North Korea Could Start World War III: A War Between Russia and America Ultimately, while American attempts to shoot-down a North Korean missile are unlikely to trigger an accidental nuclear war, it might not be good idea stress the Russian early warning system. The best option—time permitting—would be to forewarn Moscow of any attempt to shoot down a North Korean missile. If the United States decides to attempt to shoot down future North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests using the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system, it is likely that Russia’s early warning system will not mistake the interceptors for a potential nuclear attack.

Greenpeace boards ship in bid to halt delivery of UK-bound VW diesel cars

Greenpeace boards ship in bid to halt delivery of UK-bound VW diesel cars By Costas Pitas LONDON (Reuters) - Greenpeace activists boarded a ship arriving in Britain on Thursday to stop the delivery of more than 1,000 Volkswagen cars from Germany while others sought to immobilise vehicles at a port in anti-diesel protests. VW admitted cheating diesel emissions tests in 2015, triggering political and consumer pressure that has caused a slump in sales of diesel cars in major markets, with governments announcing plans to ban vehicles powered by conventional combustion engines. Greenpeace said its volunteers had boarded the ship in the Thames Estuary in an attempt to stop it unloading at the port of Sheerness in the southeast of England.
