  1. This is so great. I picturedyself in a bar from the 60s..a bit smoke-filled having a hard drink…like a vodka on ice, in a black dress listening to this and enjoying every minute.


  2. Is interesting to note that Wes Montgomery is casually smoking a cigarette while performing. Even if you were there, today it seems odd to see such photographs. I wonder what younger people think when they see such images.
