About this show

Virtuoso guitarist Pat Martino got his start on the "chitlin' circuit" with organ groups led by "Groove" Holmes, Jack McDuff, Don Patterson, Trudy Pitts, Charles Earland and others in the 1960s. Having fully recovered from a life-threatening illness in the 1980's that caused him to forget how to play the guitar and relearn by listening to his own 1960's recordings, Martino has re-emerged as a veteran presence on the jazz scene due in part to a successful association with Blue Note Records. As the New York Times noted, "Mr. Martino is back and he is plotting new musical directions, adding more layers to his myth." His playing is as fiery and technically brilliant as ever and he constantly challenges himself with new music and exciting bandmates.
