Wes With Johnny Griffin

Where would this blog be without YouTube? Here is a fantastic clip with Wes Montgomery playing with a middle-sized band that includes Johnny Griffin and a number of illustrious Europeans, such as Martial Solal, apparently in Hamburg in 1965 (details here). There seems to be three clips from this event. Wes plays fantastically, as always. First time I hear this breathtaking music.
