Song of the Day – Heart Strings, The Montgomery Brothers, 1961

Cool, mellow song by The Montgomery Brothers. If you know jazz, you obviously know Wes Montgomery, but perhaps less known is his older brother, Monk. Monk and Wes are a brother guitar tandem for all time. Monk is often credited with introducing the electric bass to jazz, which was a nice change from the monotonous – albiet silky smooth – standup sound. I’m a huge Wes Montgomery fan, and in my opinion he’s the greatest jazz guitarist of all time. Enjoy the song. I have a feeling Wes will be making an encore appearance sometime this week.
