Pat Martino: guitar; Eddie Green: piano; Ben Tucker, Tyrone Brown: bass; Lenny McBrowne: drums. You know that old saying Don't judge a book by its cover? It applies to recordings, too. Even though I've never heard a Pat Martino album that didn't knock my socks off, I've always skipped over East! in the record bins because of its bright orange jacket with its quizzical looking Buddha. Just another late '60s dabble with Eastern exoticism thought I. That stuff never works.
