“I would describe Martien as an intelligent and soulful guitarist.”
Fusion pioneer Larry Coryell
After his studies in the US. and in the course of 35 years, Martien performed and recorded with a variety of outstanding Jazzplayers: Monty Alexander, Red Holloway, Diana Krall (her first record!) and Dr. Lonnie Smith.
In 2016 he toured Europe with legend Larry Coryell who described Martien’s playing as intelligent and soulful guitarist.
In 2019 hammond organplayer Mike le Donne and Vincent Herring joined Martien for a new edition of ‘Original Grooves’ playing the major clubs in Germany and Holland.
Martien’s style of playing is clearly rooted in the Jazz tradition but at the same time he is always looking for adventure!
