While it may be frustrating that Wes Montgomery all but stopped making "real" jazz records after the demise of the Riverside label in 1963, he didn't stop being a great musician, even if later recordings gave him less room to manifest the more exciting aspects of his talent. He continued to write and record original tunes, create turbulently logical solos with those dazzling octaves and block chords, and to include at least a few cooking tunes on his more produced albums.
"Up and At It" is one of these, and while there isn't that much room to stretch out, it's still Montgomery all the way. Likewise the other original, "Goin' On to Detroit," is hardly the sound of a man just laying down the melody in octaves, as Montgomery was often accused of doing during this period. The rhythm section is none too shabby either: Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Grady Tate on drums.
