The Toronto-based Jean Martin Trio formed in the late '90s with drummer Martin at the helm, joined by one of Canada's most acclaimed current trumpeters, Kevin Turcotte, and electric guitarist Justin Haynes. In addition to original jazz material, the trio performs unique takes on standards by Kurt Weill and Rodgers & Hammerstein, as well as songs from Dr. Seuss and Oklahoma! Their debut album, Get Together Weather, was released on Page Music in 1999 to favorable reviews. Over the next year, the Jean Martin Trio played numerous festivals across Canada, including the duMaurier Jazz Festivals in Vancouver and Toronto, the Ottawa International Jazz Festival, and the Guelph Jazz Festival.
