Eddie Martinez: Coffeeshop Conversations #151 / On his long-awaited new album

By TOM D'ANTONI // Eddie Martinez new album Akosua drops June 15. It was well worth the wait. 

The cupping room runeth over today because right here in World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th & Glisan we’ve got the return of the great guitarist Eddie Martinez, who before he moved to Portland was THE in-demand studio guitarist in New York, having been in Robert Palmer’s band, among many others. And yes, that was his lick on “Addicted to Love.”

Eddie is back. He did one of these in April of 2016. We talked about a lot of things including working on a new album. Well, he’s ready to release it. It drops on June 15 and it’s a blockbuster.

We’ll hear all about it, but as happens when Eddie and I sit down to do one of these, the conversation has a tendency to deepen.

So let's catch up with Eddie Martinez.
