Wes Montgomery & Jimmy Smith 

Mellow Mood 

The Further Adventures of Jimmy and Wes

Verve, 1966

Further Adventures of Jimmy and Wes picks up where Dynamic Duo left off, digging a little further into the one-time-only Wes Montgomery/Jimmy Smith sessions and coming up with more fine music — mellower in general than Dynamic Duo but first-class nonetheless. Unlike most of the studio sessions from this time, Montgomery gets plenty of room for his single-string work as well as his famous octaves, and both techniques find him in full, mature bloom, needing fewer notes in which to say more (Smith, of course, is precisely the opposite). All but one of the tracks on the original LP find Smith and Montgomeryinteracting only with themselves, the drums of Grady Tate, and the congas of Ray Barretto.
