Martin Jones was born in Hull in 1955. He gained his experience with playing trumpet first in school bands, and then Hull school bands with many concerts with orchestra’s, concert bands and a Jazz Swing Band. He left those to form his own bands and started working with his own band commercially in the jazz field in the late seventies. By 1982 Martin was working professionally on the club circuit and the theatre circuit in cabaret. By now he was utilising his skills on the trumpet and vocals and honing his performance skills. After a successful audition, Martin started a residency at two clubs in the Latin Quarter in Paris.
