Pat Martino © Andrea Canter

Grammy-nominated jazz guitarist Pat Martino and his trio, featuring Hammond B3 organ master Pat Bianchi and drummer Carmen Intorre, will appear at the Jazz Showcase on Thursday, February 16th through Sunday, March 1st. Martino has had a prolific career in jazz that dates back to the early 1960s. He has been recording and leading his own groups since 1967. He has recorded for all of the top labels in jazz including Vanguard, Prestige, Concord, Fantasy, Warner Brothers, Polydor, Atlantic, Mainstream, and Blue Note Records. Many of Martino’s recordings are now considered classic, and all of his vinyl recordings have been reissued on CD. He has close to 30 albums out as a leader, and there would be many more if not for a life threatening illness that struck him in the mid 1970s.
