That is so false lol

Wes did transcribe a lot of Christian solo.
He was playing (publicly) Christian's tunes and solos note for note in many bars, a lot of testimonies relate this fact.

And just for quoting the Man himself :

“Every musician, until he has mastered himself and his
instrument, needs a model…No artist creates in a vacuum,
totally isolated from all influences, he must recognize his
dependence upon his surroundings and upon his heritage; he
must study the styles of accepted masters… Young
musicians play records of their favorite musicians in order
to absorb techniques and personal expressions… I wore out
parts of Charlie Christian recordings.”’

Wes Montgomery from the introduction to the book Wes
Montgomery: Jazz Guitar Method (1968)

You should just realize that transcribing solo is actually the best way to understand jazz language. You always got inspired by a model... Even Charlie Parker took some J.S. Bach things to create bebop. It is a fantasm to believe that you can create something from nothing.

kills me that I had to sit through a Home Depot Ad to hear this, and John Coltrane's estate won't see one penny of that revenue.
