Shaun Martin

is part of the successful American band Snarky Puppy , with which he has already won several Grammy Awards. He has also worked with great singing stars such as Erykah Badu, Chaka Khan and Kirk Franklin.

In Three-O he plays both piano and keys, often at the same time, accompanied by solid bass guitar and drums. On the recent album Three-O , the trio alternates their own compositions with funky versions of the jazz classics Naima (John Coltrane) and Afro Blue (Mongo SantamarĂ­a). That Shaun Martin also has a handle on traditional jazz, he already showed on the earlier release Focus, which includes acoustic piano renditions of standards by Joe Henderson and Billie Holiday.
