This is truly a "smokin’'" musical exchange between Wynton and Wes, swinging with fire-cracker energy. It's easy to hear why these two musicians relished playing together in this previously unreleased live set featuring jazz guitar icon Wes Montgomery with piano legend Wynton Kelly’s trio with bassist Ron McClure & drummer Jimmy Cobb. Recorded at Seattle’s Prestigious Jazz Club, the Penthouse, on April 14 and 21, 1966.

Pat Metheny: “This recording adds yet another dimension to the almost impossibly brief ten years that Wes was the jazz world's most renowned guitarist, particularly to completists like me who want to hang on to and cherish every note Wes played."

"The experience of playing with those guys (Wynton, Wes & Jimmy Cobb) was like being baptized," says bassist Ron McClure in his liner notes essay. "The music was joyous. It was buoyant. It was happy; positive – like they were as people”"
