Pat Martino is probably my favorite guitar player ever. On an instrument with such a storied history, people like him and Joe Pass still make me smile and tap my foot every time I hear them play. Today we are taking a look at one of his ii-V-i licks over Blue Bossa. This tune is one that every jazz musician should know regardless of skill level. This tune gets called at so many jam sessions and contains some essential chord progressions that everyone should know.
Martino uses several devices in this lick that can be of benefit to us. We see him using modes, enclosures, non-harmonic tones, and leading tones all in a very effective way that we can study and use in our own playing. Enjoy the episode!
