Martin Speake at Jazznights with Roger Odell, Simon Brown and Bernie Hodgkins with vocals from Larraine odell on Sunday 5th August 2018

Leading British saxophonist, composer, and jazz educator Martin Speake celebrates his 60th birthday and the launch of his latest album, Intention (Ubuntu Music, 2018), with a UK tour, starting next month.

Martin Speake


Intention is a revival of his musical alliance with one of the most high-profile, exciting and innovative American jazz pianists, The Bad Plus’s Ethan Iverson who will be touring with Martin along with Fred Thomas (bass) and James Maddren (drums).

Citing Charlie Parker, Paul Motian, Lee Konitz, Keith Jarrett, Ornette Coleman and Rabih Abou Khalil amongst his major influences, Martin Speake has developed a personal musical voice that expresses a deep understanding of the history and language of Jazz and an individuality as an improviser that is intelligent, melodic, cool, complex, direct, beautiful and profound.

Martin Speake

A member of the saxophone quartet Itchy Fingers in the 80s, he has recorded 18 albums as leader including the internationally acclaimed ECM release Change Of Heart with Paul Motian, Bobo Stenson and Mick Hutton.
