Pat Martino

Pat Martino's jazz guitar solo on the live version of "Sonny" is remarkable for its velvet intensity and the long flowing, integrated sense of building to an apex of intensity--and then pushing even beyond that. This man is a treasure to jazz and has no peers.

  1. Just saw him Sunday night in Hollywood. Completely agree with you. Every number was incredible -- but standing out in my memory was one of the most beautiful versions of 'Round Midnight I've ever heard. Mike N., Los Angeles.
