He has composed original music for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Complexions Contemporary Ballet, established a songwriting residency at Boston’s Wang Theater, and recently delivered a series of master classes at Berklee College of Music on the subject of Artists as Activists.

The Lance Martin Band
This is a flute led jazz/funk band out of Boston metro. The Lance Martin Band has been together in Boston since 1982. Always with an awesome personnel, this band has performed with the intent to whip an audience into a frenzy.

The music and the flute performances will hopefully dispel any preconceived notion on how a jazz flute should sound.
