We'll be Together Again - Pat Martino

When We'll Be Together Again was recorded in 1976, a 31-year-old Pat Martino was four years away from being operated on for the brain aneurysm that would wipe out his memory. The Philadelphia guitarist was also very much at the height of his creative powers — a fact that's hard to miss on this excellent session, which 32 Jazz reissued on CD in 1998. Forming an intimate duo with electric pianist Gil Goldstein, Martino is at his most introspective on sparse interpretations of the standards "You Don't Know What Love Is" and "Willow Weep for Me" as well as Henry Mancini's "Dreamsville," J.J. Johnson's "Lament," and Stephen Sondheim's "Send in the Clowns." Martino's lyricism was never more personal than it is on this album, which was first released by Muse and was out of print for many years. Thankfully, We'll Be Together Again finally came out on CD when 32 Jazz reissued it in 1998.

Pat Martino We'll Be Together Again

Lots of interesting music from this period, some of it quite listenable, some not so much. This looks like a reflective piece and I'm really looking forward to it. Thank you for this.

Pat Martino - We'll be Together Again (1976)

A guitar & electric piano duet. This easily could have gone very wrong. Thank goodness everything works.

Very entertaining music.

Easily one of my favorite Martino records. A stunning session, but don't expect fireworks here. Set this one on slow-simmer and enjoy. Another great post.
