Martin first brushed jazz with The Bad Plus, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, Keith Jarrett, Eric Dolphy and John Coltrane in his late teens. Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane (again) and Cecil Taylor introduced him to free jazz, free improvisation and avant-garde music during his early twenties. The free music scenes in New York, Chicago, Scandinavia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Poland, Japan and Portugal further opened his ears. He has been hunting fire music and adventurous sounds ever since, old and new alike.
Martin was born in 1989, currently lives on mainland Europe and slows down time to do all the things he wants to do.
