In celebration of Record Store Day, we at KUVO, will be playing the music and telling the stories about albums (especially vinyl) that are important to us.
For me it’s Wes Montgomery’s 1968 “Down Here On The Ground”
Some critics panned this recording claiming it was the beginning of the end for Montgomery as a jazz artist, and the inception lounge/mood music but for me it was the beginning of my exploration to learn more about jazz and fall in love with this music. I wore this album out playing it over and over…besides how could you go wrong when included on the album were Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Grady Tate, Ray Barretto, and Hubert Laws.
