Pat Martino: Live At Yoshi’s

Pat Martino’s "Live at Yoshi’s" finds the noted jazz guitarist playing pieces from his 45 years as a performer with a rare energy and vitality. Joined by Joey DeFrancesco on Hammond organ and Billy Hart on drums, Martino’s trio takes better-known studio recordings and plays them with sensitivity and finesse. No wonder the CD garnered two Grammy nominations in jazz instrumental categories.
