El hombre que tu amas il divo


Allmusic awarded the album 4½ stars stating "Guitarist Pat Martino's debut as a leader finds the 22-year-old showing off his roots in soul-jazz organ groups while looking ahead at the same time... Martino primarily plays a straight-ahead set but already displays a fairly distinctive sound".
