Description

'In the Beginning' features rare previously unreleased recordings by jazz guitar icon Wes Montgomery spanning the years 1949 to 1958. This deluxe 3-LP set includes 26 newly discovered live and studio recordings.

The LP version is presented on audiophile 180-gram vinyl mastered by engineering legend, Bernie Grundman and pressed on 12" LPs at 33 1/3 RPM by Record Technology Incorporated (R.T.I.). This hand-numbered limited edition pressing of 1,500 is housed in a slipcase with an 8-panel booklet and includes a digital download card and a collection of postcards of unpublished photos.

The set includes a complete 1955 Epic Records session produced by Quincy Jones, newly discovered 78 RPM sides with Wes as a sideman recorded for Spire Records (1949), a live recording from the home of Ervena Montgomery, Indianapolis (1956), live recordings from the Turf Club (1956), the Missile Lounge (1958) in Indianapolis, and the C&C Music Lounge in Chicago (1957).

'In the Beginning' features extensive liner notes, and meticulously designed artwork that have become Resonance Records' trademarks. The 3-LP version includes an 8-panel booklet of liner notes by journalist and noted jazz historian and biographer Ashley Kahn, legendary producer Quincy Jones, guitarist Pete Townshend of The Who, alongside rare never-before-published photos from The Montgomery Estate and friends in Montgomery's native Indianapolis.

Since Wes Montgomery's passing in 1968, only two other albums of predominantly unreleased material have been released - 'Willow Weep for Me' (Verve, 1968) and 'Echoes of Indiana Avenue' (Resonance, 2012). Resonance Records is pleased to introduce the third such archival offering with 'In the Beginning'.
