A Fitting Tribute to Wes Montgomery @ Indy Jazz Festival

 Saturday, on the campus of Indiana-Purdue University (IUPUI) some of the greatest jazz guitarists in the world gathered for a day of performances, workshops, and lecture panels to honor the life and music of Indiana’s own, Wes Montgomery…  

“Wow!!! What a glorious day yesterday hearing and playing with some of my favorite guitarists of all time,” Bobby Broom wrote on his Facebook page, “in tribute to jazz guitar god Wes Montgomery at the Indy Jazz Fest! And what a stellar job by Pat Martino’s group, Pat Bianchi and Carmen Intorre. They played great for nearly 3 hours!”
