Pat Martino in Bielsko-Biała
Lotos Jazz Festival 2014
Pat Martino — Гитарист
Pat Bianchi — Органист
Carmen Intorre — Барабанщик
Considered one of the bebop big four alongside Joe Pass, Jim Hall, and Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino wins over the Bielsko-Biała audience with his multifaceted and incisive virtuosity. This jazz grandmaster has influenced such artists as Michael Sembello, notably his famed Confusion, from the album Songs in the Key of Life by Stevie Wonder, as well as many others, in the course of an illustrious career that begins at the age of only 17 years old. Here in 2014, with keyboardist Pat Bianchi and drummer Carmen Intorre, he plays on of his last and most beautiful concerts.
Pat Martino is not only creative and talented, but also combative, determined, and courageous: after a brain operation in 2004, he suffered from a complete loss of memory. Despite this trauma, he learns to play his instrument again by listening to his own albums. After finally making his comeback on the stage with his trio, he is named Guitarist of the year by Downbeat. He left us in 2021 after a long career spent offering the most precious gift he could: his music.
This is just one of over 500 amazing jazz concerts available on medici.tv!
