Jazz - Pat Martino - Exit - 1976

This LP gave listeners a good sampling of mid-1970s Pat Martino. The distinctive yet flexible guitarist teams up with Gil Goldstein (who sticks here to acoustic piano), the great bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Billy Hart. Martino plays more standards than usual (four out of six songs, including "Days of Wine and Roses" and "Blue Bossa", and, of his two originals, "Three Base Hit" has the spirit and fire of bop. An excellent outing. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide.
