Zappa about The Montgomery Brothers

"And I always did like Wes Montgomery until they started smothering him with violins. I think his best album is the one on Fantasy that just has him and his brothers playing "Lover Man" and "Monterey Blues"." - Frank Zappa in One Size Fits All Interview, January 1977.

During the 1988 interview Dynamo Frank, Zappa named "Lover Man" his favorite track by Wes Montgomery.
