The Music of Wes Montgomery

The impact of Wes Montgomery on modern jazz guitar cannot be understated. Montgomery was the most significant jazz guitarist of the post-World War II era, becoming a standard-bearer and music evolutionary who elevated the guitar to a level of influence it had not previously experienced.

Join award-winning guitarist Terrence Brewer and his Quartet as we celebrate the life and music of Wes Montgomery, combining multi-media, live performance, lecture and audience Q & A. In addition, Brewer will be performing music from his Wes Montgomery Tribute album, Groovin’ Wes, which peaked at #9 on the national JazzWeek Radio charts.

No musical experience necessary - ideal for teens and adults.
