TEST Citing Lee Konitz, Charlie Parker, Warne Marsh, Bill Evans, Ornette Coleman, Steve Coleman, Rabi Abou Khalil, and Paul Motian as major influences, Martin has developed a personal musical voice that expresses a deep understanding of the history and language of Jazz with individuality as an improviser that is intelligent, melodic, cool, complex, direct, beautiful and profound.
"Martin Speake is one of the most interesting and rewarding alto saxophonists now playing jazz on any continent." - Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times
