This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

BIOGRAPHY:

Exquisite, fantastic guitarist, also playing pedal steel guitar with great taste, Martin Jenner (or Mart Jenner, as he was widely known) is one of the most underrated guitarist I can think of. A left-handed guitarist, it's very difficult finding biographical data about him.

Martin sadly passed away on May 7th, 2003 in Perth, Western Australia, after fighting two years against cancer. Any death of a musician is a sad event, but in this case, it's really a tragedy. Check the albums where he appears or videos where he is featured, and you'll enjoy Martin, no doubt.

    2. Fascinated with the Martin Jenner info .... he played on loads of The Bachelors hits and albums .... and the last Lena Zavaroni tracks recorded by me at Redbus Studios [always with Cliff's band waiting to whisk him off to a gig]

      Innovative player in the studio ... known as 'Mr Invoice' as he was the most reliable player for multi tracking his own playing ... in those days Musicians Union rules declared that an overdub was charged at 125% of the session fee extra ... second overdub 150% ... etc. etc.

      For one Lena session I paid him £678. Wow! And that was when money was money!

    3. I remember Martin when he played at The Green Man in Leytonstone in the 1970s. I think the band were Deep Feeling at the time. Admired his playing and he was a lovely man, I remember talking to him. Gutted to read he died of cancer, a very sad loss. Enjoyed reading about him, brought back wonderful memories, thanks a lot.

    4. Martin Jenner and Jon Falcon formed the excellent 'Flying Rollerskate Co.' in July of 1984. The band was augmented the following year by Mick Phillips who had worked previously with Martin and Jon. The 'Rollerskate' had a residency in The Beaufort Bars (since been demolished) in Queens Road Bournemouth and later in The New Beaufort, Poole Hill, Bournemouth. The band was active until 1988 at which time Martin emigrated to Australia.

      2. Hi,
        That confirms something I remember from when Cliff played Bournemouth years ago. When he was introducing Mart Jenner he made a point of saying, "Mart Jenner, from Bournemouth " which of course got him a great cheer! Interesting to read all info about Mart. Thanks.

    5. I too remember Martin in the early 70's playing in the Green Man, Leytonstone London. The band Deep Feeling had a residency there 5-6 nights a week. They were incredible. Martin was an absolute genius on his Dick Knight SG guitar. Anyone remember this? Faith Healer,(AHB). MY week revolved around my weekends at this place. For the price of a pint you could have a fantastic night listening to the band and his great playing. Sad loss. Thanks for this tribute it was good to read about him. Ronnie.

    8. If you follow my blog at www.driver67.com you'll hear tracks you've never heard before on which Mart plays some blistering stuff, and others where he's just heartbreaking. From late '78 till mid '79 Mart played guitar on Hey Mister Record Man, an album released under the name Tax Loss. It was supposed to be a Driver 67 album, to follow up the Top 10 success of Car 67 (the only track on which Mart didn't play). By the time of release it was clear that Driver 67 had no future (Radio 1 decided we were a one hit wonder and that was Gospel back then). Mart was brought into the band by Pete Zorn with whom he played in Barbara Dickson's band. Mart, in turn, insisted we needed Dave Mattacks on drums. That was fine by Pete Zorn, who had played with Dave, and fine by me, a big Fairport fan. Mart was a phenomenal guitarist and, indeed, a lovely man. I don't think he even made 50. Hey Mister Record Man is about to be re-released after 35 years. The blog will have updates on that. Lovely to find you here, commemorating a brilliant talent.

    9. I first met Martin when I booked him on acoustic for the Barbara Dickson "Answer Me" Album sessions way back in 1976, which I arranged and produced, beginning with the first session for the single and Bside, "Boys From The Men". Also on the session were Pete Zorn, Dave Mattacks, Ray Duffy (perc), and Babs on piano with accompanying large string session which I arranged. The session was at Scorpio Sound, Euston Road, engineer Denis Weinrich. Babs, me and Pete provided the vocal harmonies - Gordon Huntley came in and o/d'd pedal steel, including the solo. Denis Weinreich then famously "lost it" (the solo), so I think we had to pull in BJ Cole for a second try.
      All of the rest of the album was split between Scorpio and Eden studios with same line up but Jeff Alan replacing DM on drums as Dave went off on tour with the NJYO.
      I worked with Martin continuously over the years including on my own recordings - we always got on like a house on fire and he shared my love for "WC Fields"!!! Lovely man, sublime player ( most lefties are!), great sight reader, and I miss him. I've already posted and mentioned some examples of his work on youtube.

My site has pages on other musicians that you know: Irene Chanter and Mark Griffiths that played in your "Second time around" album, and soon I'll publish my updated page on Miller Anderson (what a great album "Bright city", great arrangements!) and many others that you know: B J Cole, Ray Duffy, Gordon Huntley, Barry St John, Madeline Bell...

    17. Hi Chris from Stevenage here absolutely loved The Green Man band in the mid seventies once a month 6 or 8 of us would go down they played every night except Tuesday. There are so many people in my life now including my kids that I'd love to take back to that pub. I've been playing drums since I was 17 and regularly went down to Graham's in Tooting for lessons. What a lovely lovely man so funny great sense of humour. They used to have drinking contests singing contests all sorts of props and gimmicks to make for a great night. One of guys who used to go down Len Crawley a good friend of mine used to play with all the guys in Hamburg in the 60s and they all remembered each other. What a band they did all the current chart stuff sometimes before it was even released then King Crimson, Yes, Floyd, The Who , Santana , side 2 of Abbey Road Deep Purple, the list is endless Dave on bass and working the lights with his feet Martin on guitar " It's just licks and tricks " he'd say , yea right Derek on keys doing god knows what with so many props Guy singing then a guy called Terry took over then the fabulous Mr Jarvis. I could and do talk for ages about these guys so very very sad to hear of most of them passing away. A truly great part of my life forever in my thoughts God bless em x
