John Martin Quartet

An evening of jazz classics, Rat Pack Hits & Brazilian Bossa Nova lead by critically acclaimed tenor saxophonist John Martin.

“Martin builds improvisations with a fine concern for tonal subtleties, shrewdly making use of multiphonic sounds and advanced fingerings… a distinctive voice and an explorer of restless promise.” John Fordham – The Guardian

Full band:
John Martin – Saxophone
Nick Pini – Double Bass
Dave Newton – Piano
Mark Whitlam – Drums
