Product Overview

Back in 1972, a young 20-something guitarist named Pat Martino recorded an album in appreciation of his guitar hero, Wes Montgomery. Though the entirety was created as an homage, the well-regarded recording, originally released by Cobblestone as The Visit, featured just one Montgomery tune. Twenty-three years later, Martino, now 61 and renowned as a master of the six-string himself, returns to the source and delivers Remember: A Tribute to Wes, a remarkable new CD that not only features a full set of Montgomery tunes, but also captures the essence of the legendary guitarist's legacy.

Artist Bio
Pat MartinoHe began playing guitar when he was twelve years old. and left school in tenth grade to devote himself to music. During Visits to his music teacher Dennis Sandole, Pat Martino often ran into another gifted student, John Coltrane, who would treat the youngster to hot chocolate as they talked about music.Today, Martino lives in Philadelphia again and continues to grow as a musician. As the New York Times recently noted, "Mr. Martino, at fifty, is back and he is plotting new musical directions, adding more layers to his myth." His experiments with guitar synthesizers, begun during his rehabilitation, are taking him in the direction of orchestral arrangements and they promise groundbreaking possibilities. Musicians flock to his door for lessons, and he offers not only the benefits of his musical knowledge, but also the philosophical insights of a man who has faced and overcome enormous obstacles. "The guitar is of no great importance to me," he muses. "The people it brings to me are what matter. They are what I'm extremely grateful for, because they are alive. The guitar is just an apparatus."
