Immediately in the wake of Wes Montgomery's sudden death in 1968, noting the loot that A&M and Verve were raking in, Liberty tried to emulate the successful Wes-plus-orchestra formula by "sweetening" some of the guitarist's early Pacific Jazz sessions with strings and horns. Oddly enough, the concept almost works, for the estimable Gerald Wilson is in charge of the charts, and he writes some swinging, well-played things for big band that are laid down precisely in sync with the small combo tapes to surprisingly good effect in spots.
There was also " A portrait of Wes Montgomery", with the Montgomery Brothers (featuring Wes), with strings by the infamous Gerald Wilson, also on Pacific Jazz, compiled/produced after his death. I also enjoyed "The Dynamic Duo" colaborations (with Jimmy Smith), including "Further Adventures of Jimmy and Wes". Obviously, I was, and remain a hugh fan. Let me know if more specific information can be useful. I added a citation tag to the section dealing with people influenced by Montgomery.
