Jazz guitarist Pat Martino has a new CD out on the Blue Note label.
Remember: A Tribute to Wes Montgomery
features Pat Martino backed by the very fine trio of Dave Kikoski on piano, John Patitucci on bass and Scott Allan Robinson on drums plus Daniel Sadownick help out on percussion.
If you are a fan of the full bodied sound and mellow feel of Wes Montgomery by all means give this disc a listen. Martino pays homage to Montgomery without being overly derivative but rather by incorporating Wes' sound and style with his own unique brand of jazz guitar playing. Dave Kikoski playing is also quite outstanding and adds a strong second solo voice to the date.
