Pretty sure he was playing with Joey Defransesco the last time I saw him when he opened for Steely Dan but I'm not sure.
Pretty cool clip
Even more amazing to me is that Martino not only re-learned how to play - he was able to return to the same level
of playing as before the aneurysm.
I attended a clinic he gave at G.I.T. not too long after his return to music. The aneurysm definitely didn't diminish his overall intellectual capacity - you practically need a degree in advanced math to understand some of the theoretical systems he has created.
