This fall will see the release of Pat Martino’s autobiography 'Here And Now', published by Backbeat Books. This collaboration between Pat Martino and Bill Milkowski (the author of 'Jaco') covers a wide range of Pat’s personal experiences and perspectives. It includes extensive interviews with quite a number of major guitarists, as well as photographs and graphics. This book will be a valuable addition to any music library!

Scheduled release date is Oct. 25, 2011.

 Pat Martino is an acclaimed guitarist, composer, and bandleader whose staggering artistic output since the mid-1960s for the Prestige, Muse, Warner Bros. and Blue Note labels ranks him among the premier players of his instrument. Struck down at the peak of his popularity in 1980 by a life-threatening brain aneurysm, he has made a remarkable recovery and in recent years has returned to his former glory as one of the greatest guitar players.
Bill Milkowski has been covering the jazz and blues scene since 1974. He is a regular contributor to Jazz Times and Absolute Sound magazines and his work has appeared in Guitar Player, Bass Player, Drum!, Modern Drummer, Jazziz, DownBeat, and Jazzthing. He is also the author of Jaco: The Extraordinary and Tragic Life of Jaco Pastorius (Backbeat Books).
