Recorded on January 3, 1961 at Plaza Sound Studios in New York City. 

As youngsters back in Indianapolis, Wes Montgomery and his two brothers, Monk and Buddy, learned to play together. At the time of this recording in 1961, they again teamed up as a unit just as Wes was starting to set the jazz world on its ear. Groove Yard gives a most noticeable sense of the pride and pleasure these brothers felt in being reunited. 

5 Stars! "...The Montgomery Brothers are a delight in that they have the feel of the earth in their playing without having to exaggerate, pose, or labor it." - Gene Lees, Down Beat

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

This Analogue Productions LP was remastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray at AcousTech, using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed on virgin vinyl at RTI.
