Tales from the far Side 07.03.19 The incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery

On this edition I feature the incredible Jazz Guitar playing of Wes Montgomery on what would have been his 95th Birthday, honouring an extraordinary but far too short career as one of the great innovators of modern Jazz Guitar with music from his early years, his splashes with the Riverside Label and his huge success with Verve.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
