Pat Martino El Hombre on LP

Widely recognized today as one of jazz’s greatest and most original guitarists, Pat Martino was just 22 when he entered Van Gelder’s studio to record his 1967 debut, El Hombre with Trudy Pitts, Danny Turner, Mitch Fine and Abdu Johnson. As a sideman, he had played with Jack McDuff, Jimmy Smith, Don Patterson and Groove Holmes, among other B-3 organists, so it wasn’t a stretch to hear his first offering be in the soul-jazz groove. With galloping tunes as well as tender ballads, El Hombre began a series for Prestige that saw Martino evolve into one of the foremost modern guitarists. 

In the words of liner note writer Dave McElfresh, Martino demonstrated “the unique mid-to low-range tone of his guitar, the more-intelligent-than-romantic signature that still defines his style. Such somber, fleet-fingered rants, with each phrase’s high notes punctuated like a punch in the mouth, had already - by his first album - come to embody the best of hard bop guitar playing.” A stunning debut, El Hombre features 5 originals plus the Antonio Carlos Jobim cover, “Once I Loved” and the jazz standard "Just Friends."
