In stock


* 2022 stock * New York-born drummer Stu Martin made a name for himself at the age of sixteen by playing with many of the great bands - those of Billy May, Jimmy Dorsey, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Maynard Ferguson and Quincy Jones, among others. In the 1960s he moved to Europe where he played with the greatest musicians of the time such as Jean-Luc Ponty, the Kühn brothers, Martial Solal or John McLaughlin. A very complete drummer adapting to all forms of jazz, he was part of the John Surman and Barre Phillips Trio, which recorded the mythical Alors!!! with Michel Portal and Jean-Pierre Drouet on the Futura label, then participated in the Ambush adventure with Charlie Mariano and the Solaire adventure (also for Futura) with Siegfried Kessler. His style is characterized by the use of two bass drums and his dry and clean hits on the toms. During his short career Stu Martin participated in a multitude of recordings as a sideman, before producing in 1970, for the Marge label, Sunrise - where he introduced electronic sounds -, his one and only album under his name, with Gérard Marais and Claude Barthélémy.
