Jazz Night: Q3 Trio

What's On Calendar

Jazz Night: Q3 Trio

No Wandering Yak this week, Mammoth Burger will be serving 6-9pm

Martin Hallmark’s jazz trio, the enigmatically named Q3, are relatively new and a breath of fresh air, as they steer clear of familiar jazz standards and ‘Real Book’ war horses in favour of largely original material. As pianist leader Martin also composes much of the new tunes and changes, this music has an urgency and intelligence that demands close listening. Having recently studied with top US pianist Chick Corea, he’s not afraid to break loose and play ‘outside’ or funky, either. Ably supported by Kevin Flanagan on sax, Berklee trained, nimble fingered local electric bass hero Tiago Coimbra and top drummer Steve Hynes there will be lots of virtuosity on display, backed up by some excellent content.

He has played in a range of jazz and funk formats since the early 1990s including with Helen MacDonald and Juba, Omar Puente, Orphy Robinson, Nana Tsiboe, the Ben Martin Quartet, his own Martin Hallmark quartet, which was the first band to feature his own compositions, funk and soul band Makossa and Q3.  Largely self-taught as a jazz musician, he has also had brief periods of study with Chick Corea, John Patitucci, Antonio Sanchez, Jean Touissant and Huw Warren.

His compositions have a range of influences across the jazz idiom whilst also fusing with classical elements, and with its own clear individual style.  The music is intricate, melodic and deceptively complex, which reflects both the jazz musical heritage and a contemporary outlook.
