After Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery was the third major innovator in jazz guitar. Although he passed away over 50 years ago, his outstanding musicality and his style of playing have been influential to most of the younger jazz guitarists. Wes Montgomery broadened the vocabulary of jazz guitar like no other and it seems that even decades after his passing, his importance is increasing. This is the first biography on Wes Montgomery in over 30 years, covering the details of his early days, reviews of over 50 albums and a full chronological discography.

About the Author

Oliver Dunskus, born 1962, has been fascinated by Wes Montgomery since many years. His first Wes Montgomery biography was published in Germany in 2015. This new biography in English has been entirely re-written, as much new information and many previously unreleased recordings of Wes have appeared in recent years.
