Guitar on the Go can be identified as the very last of Wes Montgomery's remarkable series of recordings for Riverside, the first company to spotlight his unique talents. This album, which features several intense performances by the man who revolutionized the art of jazz guitar, is probably best considered in tandem with the Montgomery LP that directly preceded it on Riverside (Portrait of Wes/OJCCD-144-2). Both are drawn from his final sessions for the label; both were first issued after the company had passed out of the hands of its original ownership (which may account for the admitted presence of two tracks repeated from earlier albums, "Missile Blues" and "Fried Pies"); and above all both present the artist in the organ trio setting in which he always claimed to feel most comfortable.
with Mel Rhyne, George Brown, Paul Parker, Jimmy Cobb
