Martino Unstrung

One musician's miraculous journey from musical virtuosity, memory loss, and back again

Martino Unstrung Legendary jazz guitar virtuoso Pat Martino underwent life saving brain surgery that erased his memory and musically silenced him. There he should have remained but after years in the wilderness he made a seemingly miraculous comeback of astonishing power and mastery. Pat takes film-maker Ian Knox and neuropsychologist Paul Broks on a journey that explores the mysteries of memory, identity, creativity and the self and reconsiders who we really are. Martino provides the sublime sound track.
