TAS Recommended! Rated a 'Best Audiophile Label Recording' in the November 2009 issue of The Absolute Sound!

Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the June 2007 Issue of Stereophile!

When Cannonball and Nat Adderley heard Wes Montgomery in an Indianapolis after-hours club in the fall of 1959, Cannonball decided that this remarkable talent had to be exposed to the world. He then not so much persuaded, as ordered, Riverside’s Orrin Keepnews to record Montgomery. Soon, Keepnews flew to Indianapolis, listened, and signed Montgomery before the night ended. At the age of 37, this mild, tee totaling father of six was on his way to becoming the most influential jazz guitarist since Charlie Christian.

What we hear on Montgomery’s first album is essentially what the Adderleys and Keepnews heard, Wes at the helm of his trio playing his thrilling, melodic single-note lines, revolutionary octaves and block chords. After 12 Riverside albums, Montgomery switched to another label and had huge commercial success. But it was during the Riverside period that he astonished the jazz world with his technique, musicianship and soul. This is the record that started it all.

Regarding the Analogue Productions' Fantasy 45 Series: "...the set is representative of why Analogue Productions' line of 45rpm LPs is currently the cat's pajamas in audiophile software." - Bob Gendron, The Absolute Sound June/July 2005, Issue 154

"...It is now possible to believe that John Coltrane, Bill Evans and Sonny Rollins are in your music room without ingesting psychosomatic substances to enhance your powers of perception...AcousTech definitely got it right!...Do whatever you have to, but make sure that you don't miss these releases...Don't let this fantasy become a missed opportunity." - Dennis Davis, Hi-Fi+
