Notes

Little Brother Montgomery was not your run-of-the-mill blues pianist – and he’d let you know it by word and deed. There’s some very different music on this album for the listener, whether you’re a blues fan able to do without high-energy guitar or a jazz fan capable of appreciating pre-bop. A few dixieland standards are present but the spirit of the blues that pervades all great jazz is ever-present!
