If Movin’ Wes — Wes Montgomery’s 1964 Verve debut — presented a widescreen expansion of his signature style, then 1965’s Bumpin’ elevates that vision to cinematic perfection. Utilizing the same core band as its predecessor, Bumpin’ differentiates itself with its arranger: this time Don Sebesky takes over for Johnny Pate. While both men employed an orchestra of roughly the same proportion, Pate’s arrangements were punchy with an emphasis on brass, while Sebesky’s are seductive with an emphasis on strings. The album is woven with subtle threads of Latin music (“Mi Cosa,” “Con Alma,” “Here’s That Rainy Day”) and echoes of Montgomery’s hard-bop breeding (“Tear It Down” and “Just Walkin’”) but the keystone is unquestionably the title song. One of the coolest pieces of music ever recorded, “Bumpin’” ambles forward like a tipsy stranger on a midnight prowl. The rhythm represents his stooped, swaying gait, Sebesky’s strings the urban wind, and Montgomery’s climbing guitar a gorgeous quiet melody, whistled alone and evaporated to the lamplit streets.
