Martin France

Primary Instrument: Drums

Born: February 29, 1964    

Martin France began his recording career at the age of 19 for ECM records. Born in Rainham in Kent, France dismissed music college in preference for on the road tuition. He, with his friend and music cohort Django Bates, had been performing with Evan Parker and Kenny Wheeler, and through their friendships had been introduced to ECM. France went on to record several albums for the label, and toured with some of their bands throughout the 80s and 90s. A further turning point for France was his role as a member of the famously democratically organised 80s big band Loose Tubes where he began long standing partnerships with many of its members. In fact, founding member Django Bates and Iain Ballamy are now key members of the Spin Marvel live band. Since then, Martin has performed and recorded with some of the worlds best and most diverse musicians including David Gilmour, John Taylor, Kenny Wheeler, Lee Konitz, Dave Holland, Steve Swallow, The Yellowjackets, Nils Petter Molvaer, Bugge Wesseltoft, Mike Gibbs, Maria Schneider and Sidsel Endresen to name a few, as well as non jazz activities such as TV and Film soundtracks....
