Deluxe 180-Gram Reissue. Special Gatefold Edition - Including original artwork & credits. Arranged (Conducted by DON SEBESKY Released on the Verve label in 1965, Bumpin' was Wes Montgomery's first album to reach the charts, climbing to #116 on the Billboard 200 chart. In his AllMusic review, Shawn M. Haney gave the LP four-and-a-half stars (out of five) and praised it by stating that, "Not only is Wes' brilliant command of the six-string present here, so is the vivid color tones of notes and blue notes played between. Backed up by a hauntingly beautiful and mesmerizing orchestra conducted and arranged by Don Sebesky, the music almost lifts the listener off his feet into a dreamy, water-like landscape. The atmosphere is serene and enchanting, such as a romantic evening for two under starlight, and certainly a romantic eve merits the accompaniment of this record. The sound quality is clear and lush, and, overall, this collection of mid-'60s Latin jazz is a delight to listen to, once and again".
