Pat Martino on Open Strings

“It’s very difficult, if not impossible for me to offer insight regarding a process that takes place at a moments notice. … in my opinion true art remains liquid, at the moment it’s analyzed it becomes concrete and as such it looses its magic. Regarding my use of open strings, aside from tone, and delay their use remains a selective part of the improvised format, and what they embody in that moment is unquestionable.”
