“To me, Jazz is the Art of human expression. An honest, raw, spontaneous interpretation of emotions at a given moment. Jazz is nothing more than a reflection of the Soul .”

Anthony Thomas Martinez is more than just a musician - he's a multidisciplinary artist with a passion for exploring the vast possibilities of sound. Growing up in San Antonio, Texas, he was introduced to the world of music at a young age when his father gifted him his first saxophone at the age of 12. From there, Anthony's musical journey took flight as he joined the Texas All-State Jazz Ensembles and earned numerous accolades, including the prestigious "Outstanding Soloist Award" from DownBeat Magazine.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Anthony continued his studies at the renowned Berklee College of Music, honing his skills and expanding his musical horizons. Today, he is a sought-after performer who regularly graces the stages of San Antonio's most popular music venues and travels the country, sharing his unique sound with audiences from coast to coast.
But Anthony's artistry is about more than just performing - he's also a skilled composer and producer, constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible with sound. Drawing on a wide range of influences, from Afro-Latin rhythms to hip-hop beats, Anthony's music is a rich tapestry of sonic colors that invites listeners on a journey of self-discovery and exploration.
For Anthony, music is more than just a career - it's a calling. It's a way to express the deepest parts of himself, to connect with others on a profound level, and to preserve the rich heritage of jazz while also pushing the art form forward. His music is improvisation, a reflection of where he's been and where he's going, and an invitation to join him on a journey of discovery and self-expression.
