Terrible news - thank you for sharing this with us.
We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino.
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.
