If any musician epitomises what it is to lose it all and come back it is Pat Martino. A brain aneurysm totally destroyed his ability to play, yet enough muscle memory remained in his hands to allow the physical to be overcome much more easily than the the theory.He had to learn it all again, and how.

An inspiration to Jazz musicians and certainly would be picked in the top 10 Jazz guitarists of all time,most of todays young icons idolise Pat Martino.His 1970's explorations stand the test of time, his most recent recordings are contemporary and musically relevant. Bravo Pat.
