Olli Martin Quintet

Olli Martin – Trombone
Tom Barford – Tenor Sax
Rupert Cox – Piano
Matthew Read – Bass
Dave Storey – Drums.

The Olli Martin Quintet formed in 2017 and contains musicians who have long lasting musical and friendship connections. Original compositions by trombonist Olli Martin draw upon a wide range of influences, styles and composers, including Dave Holland, Robin Eubanks, and The Mason Brothers Quintet. This all helps to produce a varied and exciting sound with strong melodies and catchy grooves performed by the powerful combination of trombone and tenor saxophone with the classic rhythm section of piano, bass and drums. The quintet have recently performed at The Con Cellar Bar, Kansas Smitty’s, Luna (Leyton) and The Talking Heads (Southampton).

 

”His playing on this, and throughout the evening, combined the soulful bravura of Kid Ory, with the musical sophistication of Urbie Green”Trevor Bannister, Jazz in Reading.
