Pat Martino: Back on Top of his Game
This Mainline Media News site features a story about the travails of Philadelphia’s own Pat Martino and retells the story of his 1980 brain surgery which left him with very little of his musical or personal memory. Pat and I had been neighbors in Philly in 1967 and became close friends. I was among the few people that he recognized during recovery, so he came to spend some time with me in New York. It was odd to speak of shared times, mutual friends and famous pieces of music and get so little recognition from a familiar face. Little by little, enough came back and, musically, Pat was back at the top of his game in no time.
