Reviews :

"Smokin' at the Half Note is essential listening for anyone who wants to hear why Montgomery's dynamic live shows were considered the pinnacle of his brilliant and incredibly influential guitar playing. Pat Metheny calls this "the absolute greatest jazz guitar album ever made," and with performances of this caliber ("Unit 7" boasts one of the greatest guitar solos ever recorded) his statement is easily validated. Montgomery never played with more drive and confidence, and he's supported every step of the way by a genuinely smokin' Wynton Kelly Trio. In 1998, Verve reissued the complete show on disc two of Impressions: The Verve Jazz Sides, although the scrambled track order and some non-essential cuts don't diminish the appeal of the original album." AllMusic Review by Jim Smith

"The live side captures Montgomery's rich sound better than any other recording I've ever heard... The opener, a hot take on Miles Davis's 'No Blues' should get your adrenaline pumping and it should stay pumped throughout... [A] worthwhile addition to any vinyl collection - certainly one every Montgomery fan will want, both because of his playing and because of the accuracy with which Van Gelder captures his signature sound. It is absolutely sensational!... [T]he double 45rpm version from Analogue Productions cut by the late George Marino from the master tapes absolutely smokes the Speakers Corner version, good though it is. This is among the most exciting live recordings (side 1) and if your system is up to it, easily creates the illusion that Wes Montgomery has set up his guitar amp on the left side of your room and is playing just for you. It's that good! Beyond very highly recommended. It's a mandatory purchase!" Michael Fremer, analogplanet.com
