This entire record is dedicated to the mellow, sentimental side of Pat Martino. After having mostly asserted his ability on high-speed tempos and crooked harmonies, the Philadelphia guitarist shows that he also has a tender heart, after all. In a series of duets with Gil Goldstein, providing excellent backup on the electric piano, Martino lets his fingers – that can’t help occasionally rushing, with great effect – wander along the lush chords of a set of ballads. This is an unexpected milestone in the career of a guitarist who’s better known for his “fast trigger” reputation.
