Six String Jazz - Road Song.mp3

Wes Montgomery was a very melodic guitarist who recorded his final album,"Road Song," in 1968 prior to dying that year from a heart attack. Wes worked as a welder to support his wife and seven children, having to hit the road often to travel to gigs. His skill made him a frequent player with other jazz greats and this road song tune is a tribute to his need to travel.

The trio's pianist, Ian Saylor, took a break this week to travel with his son to hike the bluffs and mountains of the west coast. We recorded 'Road Song' last week and pass it along to you.
