Pat Martino: Remember: A Tribute to Wes Montgomery

Read "Remember: A Tribute to Wes Montgomery" reviewed by John Barron


The last thing jazz needs is more tribute projects that merely perpetuate the ever-increasing stagnation of an industry trying to make a fast buck off the legacy of fallen giants.

Gli appassionati di jazz conoscono la sfortunata storia di Pat Martino: voce tra le più significative della chitarra jazz negli anni Settanta, nel 1980 viene colpito da aneurisma cerebrale; operato, perde quasi completamente la memoria, anche quella chitarristica.
