A lot of places we go, when they see the organ coming in, they're expecting rock and roll, but after they hear us play they like it. To me, guitar cuts through-it carries more than organ. But organ has got more guts.More Wes Montgomery quotes [07/27/2011 08:07:55]
You know, John Coltrane has been sort of a god to me. Seems like, in a way, he didn't get the inspiration out of other musicians. He had it. When you hear a cat do a thing like that, you got to go along with him. I think I heard Coltrane before I really got close to Miles [Davis].

Like, there's a lot of tunes that I play all the time-sometimes I hear 'em in a different register. And if you don't have complete freedom, or you won't let yourself get away from that one straight line, oh, my goodness, that's too horrible to even think about.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I got a standard box. I don't never want nothing special. Then if I drop my box, I can borrow somebody else's.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I never practice my guitar. From time to time I just open the case & throw in a piece of raw meat.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
