Wes Montgomery | The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery (1960) | In Your Own Sweet Way
Wes Montgomery’s tranquil take on this standard sounds deceivingly old-fashioned at first but is truly influential, even hinting at the soul music that began emerging immediately after this release. The classic album is full of hip substitutions, great blues re-interpretations, and skilled, stylistically original guitar playing.
UPenn vs. UChicago
Trusting Tumblr for making university decisions is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever done but it’s worked for admissions so why not now? As the title suggests, it comes down to University of Pennsylvania and University of Chicago so alums/current students: come at me bro!
(But no, really, it’s just an ignorant and confused international student seeking advice. If your institution is sexy and you know it, please drop me a line. Perhaps, a maniac expounding their love for their university would rub off on me)
