American jazz guitarist (1923-1968) who is widely considered one of the major jazz guitarists; his recordings up to 1965 were generally oriented towards hard bop, soul jazz, and post bop, while his later-career guitar style is a major influence on fusion and smooth jazz. Vintage fountain pen signature, "The Best, Wes Montgomery,” on an off-white 4.5 x 2.25 slip. Removably corner-mounted to a display sheet with an image of Montgomery.
