One of the most influential guitarists of modern jazz, Wes Montgomery was heavily affected by his predecessors Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt.

After a touring with Lionel Hampton's band in the late '40s he set out to find a place for his instrument in the newly emerging world of hard bop, to great success.
