Philip "Doc" Martin
Since the release of his 2003 debut Saxappeal, Phillip “Doc” Martin has been wowing audiences everywhere from Blues Alley in D.C.to prominent venues like Ram’s Head Tavern in Annapolis, Maryland, Philadelphia’s Dell East, SoCal’s Spaghettini, in addition to appearances at the Bahamas Jazz Festival, Carolina Music Festival, Trenton Jazz Festival, Berks Jazz Fest, the St. Lucia Jazz Festival, Catalina Island Jazz Trax Festival and many more earning inspiring amounts of airplay (including on XM Watercolors and The Weather Channel) for tracks like “Deep-Pockets” and the title track from his 2009 set Realization. His latest Next Paradigm Records Self-Titled release, Phillip Doc Martin further establishes this powerful expertise via his dynamic flow and tight, funky old-school-driven alto vibe.
While many independent artists with cool, successful “day jobs” prefer to avoid references to them when they talk about their music, Martin is the complete opposite, fully embracing the inspirational factor of being a top-notch practitioner in two very different professions. Beyond his ever-expanding musical fan base, hundreds of patients in the Washington DC area know him as “Dr. Martin,” a board-certified dentist at his own practice Quality Dental of Bowie.
