...the most famous Italian Christmas Carol, "Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle" (You come down from the Stars), written in December 1754 near Naples by Alfonso Maria de' Liguori, a bishop/musician/theologian, who was canonized in 1839 by Pope Gregory XVI.

Apart from BIAB bodhran and rhythm guitar RealTracks, I've used a Seagull Performer Mini-Jumbo for the "basic" guitar melody track, while for the other guitar parts I've used my Godin ACS SA, via a Roland VG-99.

Buon Natale!

Alfredo

Beautiful tune. I didn't know about this song, so I am glad you brought it to my attention. Excellent choice for percussion and the guitars sound wonderful. Harmony playing is just right. Some mighty fine Christmas tunes abounding this season.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
