Resonance to Issue Unreleased Live Wes Montgomery LP

“One Night in Indy” was recorded in 1959

One Night in Indy, a previously unreleased live recording of guitarist Wes Montgomery with the Eddie Higgins Trio, will be released on vinyl by Resonance Records for Record Store Day, April 18. The tape was presented to the label by photojournalist Duncan Schiedt before he passed away last year. The music was recorded at a club Duncan and friends ran called The Indianapolis Jazz Club (aka The IJC) on Sunday, January 18,1959. The trio includes Montgomery on guitar, Higgins on piano, an unknown bassist and Walter Perkins (Ahmad Jamal’s trio drummer before Vernell Fournier) on drums.

In a press release, Resonance said that it’s “releasing this music on an exclusive 12-inch record and only pressing 2500 for the world. This will only be on LP until 2016-2017 when the music will be included on a forthcoming multi-disc CD/LP release.” The label added, “Just to be clear, there will also be a forthcoming 2CD/3LP Montgomery set coming this May (no connection with this music).”
