Live at Yoshi's
Pat Martino's 2001 album, "Live at Yoshi's", is a concert recording featuring Martino on guitar supported by Joey DeFrancesco (Hammond B3) and Billy Hart (drums). The CD is an amazing example of Martino's abilities as a jazz guitarist, and as a member of a guitar/organ/drum trio. Martino absolutely burns on tracks such as "Oleo" and "El Hombre", while taking a smoother route in "All Blues". If you loved the sound of Martino's rapid lines in the past, you'll love his work on "Live at Yoshi's", which is strongly recommended for guitar players of all abilities and for jazz guitar fans of every stripe. Sets a standard of excellence for live jazz recordings - swinging and soulful, incendiary and inspiring.
