The Maker

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Robert Taylor
A sigh of relief was breathed by many a fan upon the release of The Maker, because it marked the first time Pat Martino had released recordings in successive years since the late '70s. Here he is once again joined by kindred spirits James Ridl on piano and Marc Johnson on bass, along with the relatively unknown but very capable Joe Bonadio on drums.

Martino is in a reflective mood on this standout track -- as he also is on "The Changing Tides" and "Yoshiko" -- with strong similarities to his classic We'll Be Together Again recording with Gil Goldstein.
