“I was still very much a jazz guitar student when I attended Pat’s clinic at GIT. We had already become fast friends and I was there to partake of his wisdom and musical genius. When he called me up to play with him I was floored. It remains a life-changing moment for me. I visit here often.” – Wolf Marshall
