He has also lived in Halifax, Montreal and Vancouver playing in many major jazz clubs and with various jazz greats including Maynard Ferguson, Sonny Stitt, Georgie Auld, Bud Freeman and Henry Cuesta. He did a three year residency at the prestigious Pan Pacific Hotel and appeared on the Vancouver Jazz festival stage over a period of 11 years. Franklin is now permanently based in Abbotsford.
Marty's current CD is a mixture of American Song Book standards, blues and latin jazz. His stellar band features electric guitar, stand up bass and drums.
