Sunday Music Muse Day - Pat Martino

For this, the last Sunday Music Muse Day of October, I offer a double dose of the incredible jazz guitar legend, Pat Martino.  Both the CD are of sessions he made after recovering from a serious illness the robbed him of his memory, and the ability to play guitar. He basically taught himself play all over again.  You'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between the before and after period.  It's a amazing, inspiring story. First up is Pat Martino Interchange (1994) a collection of six tunes, five Pat original and one Mile Davis tune, Blue in Green.

The second CD is Pat Martino Nightwings, released in 1996, two years after Interchange, but actually record in May 27, 1994.  Just three months after Interchange was record (March 1, 1994)  I guess they wanted to spread out the goodness.

 Again, Pat Martino's story and music should be an inspiration to all showing the strength of the creative human spirit. It's the  positive boost we need to get us through those trying times.
