For your Saturday jazz fix, the one and only Wes Montgomery. If I am down and listen to this it is not possible to remain there. Jazz is this thing, like love or zen, that isn’t translatable to words, really. The feeling that it evokes, when it is good, is just magic
So I am very lucky indeed to be given a chance to learn to play and sing it. As you watch Wes in this video, he is so happy, relaxed, yet exuding joy. Maybe he was feeling how lucky he was to be such a great player. He kinda reminds me of the cat that swallowed the canary, like, if you people only knew how much fun it is to play this music, you would all want to do it too!
