On his brand new CD Remember guitarist Pat Martino pays tribute to the great guitarist Wes Montgomery. Martino’s style has always been drenched in Montgomery influences anyhow, so he didn’t really have to make an afford to approximate the warm and melodious style of the guitarist who passed away in 1968. Pat Martino, a denizen of Philadelphia, has suffered any musician’s worst nightmare: he lost his memory after brain surgery and lost the capacity of playing his guitar. The instrument used to be his true companion in the bands of Jack McDuff, Willis Jackson and Don Patterson, but now it was of no use to him. However, Martino opted for the counter-attack: by listening to his own old recordings he succeeded in ‘re-mastering’ his old techniques in an impressive way. Martino recorded some fine albums for Blue Note in the last few years.
