Editors’ Notes

It was the destiny of Jimmy Smith and Wes Montgomery to be musical brothers, so it’s no surprise that they created a sequel to their first duet album, The Dynamic Duo. Further Adventures of Jimmy and Wes has a slight edge on its predecessor, if only because it offers a more diverse selection of material. The inclusion of “King of the Road” and the driving “O.G.D. (Road Song)” is enough to give the impression that the album is about traveling, at least implicitly. There is undoubtedly a kinetic, forward-moving energy to the interplay between Smith and Montgomery. In spite of their restrained tone—or perhaps because of it — their symbiotic lines fuel a miniature motor that drives every one of these songs. A brassy interpretation of Miles Davis’ “Milestones” is the odd duck here. The majority of the album is blue-flame percolation at its finest, with “Maybe September” and “Mellow Mood” as the hypnotic standouts. The music never breaks its trancelike state, even as Montgomery peels from his frets acrobatic melodies that spring forth and evaporate like trails of colored light.

Customer Reviews

Further Adventurs of Jimmy and Wes

4 stars for Jimmy and Wes; 1 For Oliver Nelson. Talk about a threesome (Unwanted and wish would go away)! Neither Jimmy nor Wes was sellouts; Oliver nelson and Creed Taylor could not sell songs by themselves. So they u$ed Jim and Wes for a vehicle to market their ideas for a symphonic elevator ride. However, this technique used by the marketers of Santana bridges the gap between generations. My preference as a Pure Jazz aficionado would have preferred one take with the orchestra and one, most definitely without!

Jimmy Smith wasn't the first organ player in jazz, but no one had a greater influence with the instrument than he did; Smith coaxed a rich, grooving tone from the Hammond B-3, and his sound and style made him a top instrumentalist in the 1950s and '60s, while a number of rock and R&B keyboardists would learn valuable lessons from Smith's example. James Oscar Smith was born in Norristown, Pennsylvania on December 8, 1928 (some sources cite his birth year as 1925). Smith's father was a musician and...
