His turning point happened at Grammy dinner in 1965.
Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss came to the dinner venue to want to meet him.
They started A&M Records and wanted to record jazz.
They were asking him for new record company.
In effect, they had agreed to let him start his own subsidiary label, CTI Records, within A&M.
He had been working toward that level of creative independence his entire career.
The first album he produced at A&M under the CTI name was ‘A Day in the Life with Wes Montgomery’.
The record instantly became a bestseller.

In 1967, two years before he left A&M Records, he produced Wave with Antonio Carlos Jobim.
This was one of his first CTI recordings when CTI was a subsidiary of A&M.
