THE MARTIN SPEAKE GROUP
has been in existence for over ten years and consequently the musicians have a close rapport when performing.
The music is composed by Martin and draws on all his experiences and influences. This includes the jazz tradition of America and Europe, folk music from around the world, free improvisation and classical music.
His music has an inherently melodic quality and each musician's contribution is strikingly individual yet subordinate to the collective sound.
John Parricelli (guitar), Mick Mutton (double bass) and Tom Skinner (drums) along with Martin Speake (alto saxophone) make up the current group.
As individuals they have collaborated with many leading musicians.
