RIP PAT MARTINO guitar legend

“The guitar is of no great importance to me. The people it brings to me are what matter. They are what I’m extremely grateful for, because they are alive. The guitar is just an apparatus.”

We’re honored that the Pat Martino Organ Trio feat. Pat Bianchi organ and Carmen Intorre Jr. on drums performed at and were a highlight of the PDX Jazz Festival 2016 at the Newmark Theatre.

“True Music, like all true Art, is an experience to be shared, not judged, for praise cannot make it better, as blame cannot make it worse.”

Listen back to the wonderful Jazz Conversation with Pat, Carmen and Pat on Oregon Music News HERE produced by Stephen Blackman.
