Pat Martino: The Visit, 1972

This album was also released under the title Footprints and it's available elsewhere online under that name, but I thought I'd upload this version of it too, for the cover art if nothing else. It's closer to Martino's sparser, more laid back material like Baiyina rather than his busier, more progressive stuff like Desperado. Still, The Visit, a tribute to Wes Montgomery, is more groove oriented than Baiyina. On both albums, the bass tends to hold down melodic patterns rather than walk, but on the Visit Martino keeps his solos a little more inside.
Pat Martino: guitar
Bobby Rose: second guitar
Richard Davis: bass
