    The cool-toned mastery of Wes Montgomery's guitar playing is enough to light fires in the heart of even the steeliest music listener most times, but when he turns his six-string to songs of love--watch out. This collection, released February 2008, just in time for Valentine's Day, finds Montgomery giving gorgeous readings to classics like "Prelude to a Kiss," "In Your Own Sweet Way," and "I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face," among other gems. A paragon of the cool jazz sound, Montgomery and his smooth lyricism are perfect for romantic themes: the result is meltingly beautiful.
