The Exciting Mister Fitch
Capitol Records T 1884
What a terrific space age jazz/blues album! According to Montgomery's wiki page (discography), this was Montgomery's first LP. This album doesn't appear to be available in digital form at this time.
The blend of Montgomery's fantastic "smoky club voice" and the band are right on. I love the organ breaks by Dick Hyman. Other session musicians include Sam "The Man" Taylor - Tenor sax, Joe Newman - Trumpet, Osie Johnson - Drums, Kenny Burrnell and Chuck Wayne - Guitar, George Duvivier, Milt Hinton and Joe Benjamin - Bass and Joe Venuto, Phil Kraus and Willi Rodriguez - Percussion.
