Jazz in the Libraries
"A soloist of immaculate taste, soul and lyricism" John Fordham (The Guardian)
The newest incarnation of the Ben Martin Quartet draws upon most aspects of the jazz tradition from New Orleans through to Swing, Be-Bop, Hard Bop and Free Jazz. Playing originals and standards with humour and passion Ben is joined by Matthew Ratcliffe on piano, Martyn Spencer on double bass and Andrew 'Woody' Wood on drums.
Collectively the band have worked with Groove Armada, Schmoov! Lady Gaga, Kenny Wheeler, Allen Vizzutti, Andy Sheppard, Jim Mullen, Dave Newton, Tom Middleton, Charles Webster and many more.
Expect virtuosic stream of consciousness improvisation alongside carefully crafted arrangements and reflective tender moments.

Ben Martin - Saxophones
Matthew Ratcliffe - Piano
Martyn Spencer - Double Bass
Andrew Wood - Drum kit
