"... an organ-drenched speedfest that shows off this Philly kid’s ability to play soulfully, spinning out seemingly endless solos shot through with blue notes, flatted fifths, and 30-second runs. It was Martino’s calling card, and this was his party. And it is, appropriately, a good time." - PopMatters.com Widely recognized today as one of jazz’s greatest and most original guitarists, Pat Martino was just 22 when he recorded his debut album El Hombre in 1967. The album, his first date as a leader, finds the young guitarist flashing his distinctive soul-jazz chops. Accompanied by organist Trudy Pitts, flutist Danny Turner, drummer Mitch Fine and both Abdu Johnson and Vance Anderson on percussion, Martino's runs alternatingly dance over Latin-tinged rhythms and groove in the pocket with classic, soulful flavour. El Hombre stands the test of time as an absolute best-of-genre, guitar soul-jazz workout.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
