I just watched this video this morning and wanted to share it with you. I’ve been a fan of Pat Martino’s music for many years and more recently have several times had the amazing good fortune to go to his house to play with him and discuss his theories on music and the nature of the guitar, sacred geometry and many other topics. As well as being a fantastic musician, Pat is a beautiful human being with a deep intellect and an interesting story to tell.
Note: the original video I mentioned is no longer available online, so I’ve substituted this one from Youtube.
Pat’s autobiography Here and Now is also a great read and highly recommended! Here are some other Pat Martino related links worth checking out: http://patmartino.com/ http://www.myspace.com/patmartinojazz http://www.patmartino.com/Articles/GuitarPlayer_April_2004.pdf
