Along with Django Reinhardt, the Father of the Jazz guitar should be in the RRHOF as an Early Influence

Tahvo - What do you think about Wes Montgomery? He is regarded by many as the greatest jazz guitar player ever. I will probably be voting for him in our projected section in September.

Wes Montgomery should be in there too!! Anybody who influenced players like Hendrix, SRV and Eric Johnson among countless others should be a no-brainer, IMO. And yes, I'll be voting for him when Rock Hall Projected resumes.
