The Grammy-nominated artist breathes a distinct life into “Snooze,” replacing spoken lyrics with powerful saxophone melodies. This sultry reinterpretation carries the unspoken message of the song in a way that only an accomplished instrumentalist like Martin can.

In addition to this exciting release, Martin announced a new strategic partnership with BMG for Sounds of Crenshaw, aimed at nurturing new talent in the jazz genre. This alliance, with Martin at the helm as executive producer, seeks to incorporate and preserve the rich legacy of jazz while cultivating a new generation of musicians.

The partnership is not Martin’s first with BMG; they worked together on his 2021 release, DRONES, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Progressive R&B Album. The album featured collaborations with major artists including Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Ty Dolla $ign, YG, Cordae, Robert Glasper, Leon Bridges, James Fauntleroy, among others.

Martin’s career, spanning over a decade, began with his exceptional instrumental skills across drums, piano, and saxophone. After earning recognition as a producer for Power 106 Radio in Hollywood, Martin released his debut album, Signal Flow, in 2011. His discography since then includes over 10 full-length albums, and he has collaborated with an impressive roster of artists, including Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Travis Scott, and Stevie Wonder.

Martin’s reinterpretation of “Snooze” marks a new chapter in his career as he continues to contribute to the evolution of contemporary music while nurturing the future of jazz.
