Guitarist Joshua Breakstone pays tribute to Wes Montgomery on this set, performing eight of the late guitarist's compositions plus his own "Tomorrow's Hours." Montgomery was not really known as a composer, although the songs that Breakstone has chosen are mostly pretty inventive, even if few (other than "Twisted Blues" and "Jingles") are that well-known. Joined by bassist Earl Sauls and drummer Keith Copeland, Breakstone emulates Montgomery's style in a few spots (utilizing octaves a little more than usual), but mostly plays in his own complementary voice. The music is straight-ahead and swinging and is as easily recommended as all of Joshua Breakstone's recordings.
