Tequila is essentially a small group album featuring Wes Montgomery in collaboration with bassist Ron Carter, drummer Grady Tate and conga player Ray Barretto, occasionally swaddled in strings courtesy of arranger Claus Ogerman. The group’s understated approach to the standard “Tequila” — arguably the bounciest song ever made — sets the tone for the album. On “What the World Needs Now Is Love” and “Wives and Lovers” the band moves with the frictionless flutter of a midnight hummingbird. Meanwhile “Little Child (Daddy Dear)” and “Midnight Mood” hold the music in narcotic suspension — a spell that could be terrifying if it weren't so overwhelmingly seductive. At this point in his career, Montgomery was arguably the most sensual instrumentalist in jazz, animating guitar with a caress typically apprehended by only the most accomplished saxophonists. At the same time, Wes could strike you dead with a perfectly articulated statement. “Bumpin’ On Sunset” is a stone-cold killer, a song that would be militant if Montgomery didn’t deliver it with such devastating gentility.
