So sad to hear of Pat passed away. Even though I play other genres of music, I loved his playing because it spoke to me. So much soul, and so deep harmonically, I admired him all the more when I got to meet him at a show in Chicago years ago. He seemed so kind and genuine, with no hint of ego or superiority. Truly one of the finest guitarists the world has ever been blessed with. RIP Maestro, my deepest sympathies to his loved ones. 💙🙏

I am so sad to learn of Pat's passing. What a brilliant, beautiful soul. His music certainly enriched my time on earth with him. I'm glad I got the opportunity to tell him that a few years back.

From 1981 - 1988 I played more of Pat Martino's music on the radio and promoted his career more than anyone in the world. As Music Director of WRTI/JAZZ90 from 1983-1988, Pat's father used to call me on the telephone to beg me not to praise his son's music so much because he didn't want Pat to hear people talking about his past accomplishments (I told Pat about this at a gig in Seattle in 2002). I'm a guitarist and Professor of Music who also studied with Sandole and other great Philadelphia luminaries, Pat's passing is a profound loss. May your memory and your music live forever. RIP.

After reading compliments about Pat in interviews with Barney Kessel and Jimmy Raney back in the 1970s, I bought a copy of "The Visit" and was hooked halfway through the title tune. Many years later, I told Pat that his picture on the album cover made me wonder what he was like in person. He amusedly told me the the picture was from a video production in which he played a pickpocket.

My wife Jeannine and I are deeply saddened by Pat's passing. As I said in John Ernesto's post about Pat, "we had the privilege of hearing and meeting Pat many times.What an extraordinary guitar player and spiritual, humble man. Pat will be miss ed more than he realizes. After my brain surgery (it was an abscess) I used Pat's inspiration to help recover and play guitar again.I distinctly remember him saying (after I asked him whether he was teaching) "If God 's plan allows it, our paths will cross again!" In a strange way he was prophetic! He truly is my guitar hero! God Bless you!
