As many of you may have noticed apart from the Ulozto problem the main Mega account has been suspended, therefore the blog will be temporarily down until we can restructure and normalise the blog. I appreciate all the support you have shown me. Thank you for your understanding.

Wes Montgomery & The Wynton Kelly Trio • The Unissued 1965 Half Note Broadcasts


New York’s night-time airwaves used to be full of stuff like this: casual live broadcasts from Manhattan jazz clubs. Not programmes exactly, more slices of reality-jazz radio. Here we have the late Wes Montgomery, still a powerful influence on today’s guitarists, and the Wynton Kelly Trio at the Half Note, a comfortable little joint in the Village. Like most unmediated recordings, this has its ups and downs, but Montgomery’s fluency and the whole band’s relaxed togetherness are impressive. They play some blues, a few standards and several Montgomery originals. Customers call out requests, the MC points out a distinguished visitor or two, glasses clink, everything’s mellow. That’s the way it was, half a century ago.
Dave Gelly / 2015


Las ondas nocturnas de Nueva York solían estar llenas de cosas como esta: transmisiones casuales en vivo desde los clubes de jazz de Manhattan. No programas exactamente, más trozos de radio de jazz real. Aquí tenemos al difunto Wes Montgomery, que sigue siendo una poderosa influencia para los guitarristas de hoy en día, y el Wynton Kelly Trio at the Half Note, un confortable pequeño antro en el Village. Como la mayoría de las grabaciones no mediadas, esto tiene sus altibajos, pero la fluidez de Montgomery y la relajada unión de toda la banda son impresionantes. Tocan algo de blues, algunos estándares y varios originales de Montgomery. Los clientes llaman a las peticiones, el MC señala a uno o dos visitantes distinguidos, las copas tintinean, todo es suave. Así es como era, hace medio siglo.
Dave Gelly / 2015
