Montgomery, Wes: silky smooth guitarist, born Indianapolis 1923, died Indianapolis 1968; revolutionized the art of jazz guitar and beat the odds when his songs were played regularly by AM radio stations. At the peak of his commercial success, a fatal heart attack silenced Montgomery's octave-note solos and sophisticated chords. How cool? Strong work ethic translated into days spent as a welder and nights spent onstage. My husband found one of his guitars and sold it.
