Full House is the seventh album and first live jazz album by American jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery, released in 1962 (see 1962 in music).


The performance was recorded live at Tsubo in Berkeley, California on June 25, 1962. The session featured a quintet that included Wynton Kelly on piano, Johnny Griffin on tenor saxophone, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums.

The original release was on the Riverside Records label. There have been a number of reissues of the recording, most including alternate takes of several tracks. A 1987 CD release on Riverside Records/Original Jazz Classics was digitally remastered by Danny Kopelson at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California.[1] A more recent, 2007 Riverside release features additional bonus tracks.[2]
