Local Musician Spotlight: Bob Montgomery

Jun 20, 2017

Bob Montgomery is yet another example of an international talent who has settled in Colorado by choice to enjoy the great local musicianship we all appreciate here in Denver.

Bob has appeared throughout Europe, Australia, Canada, China, Mexico, Japan, Great Britain, New Zealand and the United States.

Sometimes even the most delicious entree can be improved by adding another ingredient. For years the Montgomery-Hermann ensemble has been entertaining audiences along the Front Range as well as in other destinations around the world, their On the Brink recording was well received and garnered numerous spins both here in Colorado and nationally.

We close out another  April Jazz Appreciation Month by featuring a project by 6 of the Front Range's finest musicians, it's The Montgomery Herman Quinlan Sextet's Hear, Here on Summit Records. In addition to the front line of horns, Bob-trumpet, Al-trombone, and Josh-sax, you'll hear Dave Hanson-piano, Ken Walker-bass, and Todd Reid, a most formidable rhythm section.

Join me Friday for a special edition of Lunchtime at the Oasis beginning at Noon when 2 former Clark Terry disciples and C. T.  band members, trumpeters Bob Montgomery and Brad Goode join me to share their memories about the late Clark Terry. Both Bob and Brad attended Mumbles' 94th birthday at his home in Pine Bluff, AK earlier this year and have just returned from participating in Mr. Terry's memorial services in NYC last weekend.
