hands. Influenced by his father, Stu Martin, who played with Jazz greats such as Herbie
Hancock, John McLaughlin, Charles Mingus, Dave Holland and Quincy Jones to name a few,
Zeke’s musical repertoire includes a blend of Jazz, Funk, R&B, Reggae, Rock and more.
In 1985, at the age of 12, Zeke had his first gig with Steve Lacy, in France. Shortly after, he
moved to the United States where he began a successful career, including the formation of
Zeke Martin & The Oracle in 2000. Since then The Oracle has released four CD’s entitled
