A collection of 14 of Wes Montgomery's great jazz guitar solos transcribed directly from recorded performances. Included are such landmark solos as Work Song; Sack o' Woe; Unit 7; Fallout; Jeanine; Blue Roz; Full House; Mi Cosa; Doujie; Missile; Blues; and others. All solos are in notation and tablature. Most of the pieces can be heard on Riverside's "Wes Montgomery: The Complete Riverside Recordings." The new revised edition matches the recordings much more closely than the first edition, with more detailed rhythms in several pieces. All of Wes' original solos are faithfully transcribed here in notation and tablature for your study. The book also contains general performance notes, a chronological discography, and a touching biographical essay.
