Pat Martino born in South Philadelphia on August 25, 1944 first began his career as a guitarist shortly after moving to new York City in his mid-teens.

His early recording efforts were often in the company of saxophonists Willis Jackson and Eric Kloss and would go on to work frequently with jazz organists including Jack McDuff, Tony Monaco, Trudy Pitts, Jimmy Smith, Charles Earland, and Richard Holmes.

Martino appear on numerous releases throughout the 1960s and '70s, as both a leader and sideman.

He has become known for his method of improvisation, "Conversion to Minor", in which the artist uses chromatic notes outside any IIm7 chord that can be played over a chord progression.

A nearly fatal brain aneurysm in 1980, left the guitarist with amnesia. Unable to remember his life as a guitarist with the aid of friends and recordings he taught himself to play once more.

With the 1987 LP "The Return"Pat Martino's marked his triumphant return to music.

Martino's "Undeniable: Live at Blues Alley" released on Highnote Records in 2011 would hit No. 1 on the jazz charts one month after being issued.
