Pat Martino - Think Tank
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Pat Martino - Think TankGuitarist Pat Martino is a modern jazz miracle: he relearned to play his instrument by listening to his old records after a 1980 brain aneurysm caused him to forget everything. Now back in form, Martino has attracted an all-star cast with tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano and Cuban piano star Gonzalo Rubalcaba for his latest album, which includes such bluesy gems as John Coltrane’s “Africa.” But the highlight is the ballad “Sun on My Hands,” featuring Martin and Rubalcaba in gentle but stirring call-and-response.
