7 comments on “Rediscovered Records – Wes Montgomery – Bumpin’ (1965)

  1. Bumpin’ is in my top three favorite jazz albums ever, along with Coltrane’s My favorite things and Miles’ In a silent way. Bumpin’ is hands down my favorite track from Wes. I have it on vinyl, nothing sounds better.

  2. My favorite Wes albums are: Moving Wes – (the best guitar version of Caravan I’ve every heard.) Smoking at the Half Note and the Dynamic Duo – Wes. & Jimmy Smith.

    I was fortunate to have heard Wes in person numerous times. Wes did “impossible” stuff on the guitar in person. He was in a league all my himself!

    All of his stuff is good.

    • Hi Darrell, it’s March 16th according to all the discographies. Looks like someone in writing the notes read MAR as MAY.
