The Greg Millar Quintet will re-create the classic Riverside Records album Bags Meets Wes, which featured two of the greatest jazz artists in the history of music: Milt Jackson, affectionately known as “Bags,” and John L. Montgomery, known more popularly as “Wes.” These artists combined their talents with the great rhythm-section team of Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones in December 1961 to create a swinging session of standards and originals.

The Millar Quintet will present their recorded material, along with extra compositions associated with Jackson and Montgomery to round out this program, which is guaranteed to please all jazz audiences.
