Wes Montgomery peforms Four on Six with Rick Laird on bass, Stan Tracey on piano, and Jackie Dougan on drums. The footage is from a television broadcast in London, England on May 7, 1965.

Some nice finger work closeups in this, excellent for observing how instruments are played. As one YouTube commenter remarks, “whoever did the camera work for this is a hero.”
