How was your experience?
Two great musicians, however Pat Martino on guitar was overpoweringly loud and - as a result - came across somewhat rough. Eldar Djangirov's piano playing was excellent, inventive, and refined, but he was drowned by the guitar except during his solo pieces. What a shame. I spoke to the sound person but she said there is nothing she can do if Pat Martino turns up his amp that much. It could have been a great concert, but was only "ok" that way. PS this is the first time ever that I had sound issues at Yoshi's - I've been many times and never had any problems.
