Down Here On the Ground


John Leslie "Wes" Montgomery was an American jazz guitarist. Wes was known for an unusual technique of plucking the strings with the side of his thumb and his extensive use of octaves, which gave him a distinctive sound. Heston wanted to capture and pay homage to the not too well-known jazz guitarist legend, and celebrate his brilliance. Heston reflected on Wes’ untimely passing at the age of 45 and commented, “one can only imagine the potential of his genius.”
