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. At first glance it would appear that this is exactly what Remember is all about. But fortunately, the artist paying tribute here is Philadelphian Pat Martino, ...

Pat Martino: Remember: A Tribute To Wes Montgomery

Read "Remember: A Tribute To Wes Montgomery" reviewed by Russ Musto

The tribute album allows an artist to document his indebtedness to another's influence on his own style with a more fully formed personal approach and individual voice. It shines a spotlight on the honoree's body of work in a way that no single record in that artist's discography did during his lifetime. And it introduces a ...

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

Guitarist Pat Martino has overcome far more than his share of obstacles. Emerging in the mid-1960s, he released a string of acclaimed albums starting with the classic El Hombre (Prestige, 1967) and ending with the overlooked fusion classic Joyous Lake (Warner Bros., 1977). Then a brain aneurysm literally stole his identity and for the next decade ...

Read "Remember: A Tribute to Wes Montgomery" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

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. Riparte così da zero, con i suoi vecchi dischi e l'aiuto del computer come compagni di viaggio nel ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
