His solo work recorded in the 1930s is also notable, songs such as "Crow Jane" and "Old Time Blues" feature his remarkable guitar accompaniment. From this decade onwards, Martin played regularly solo in the Chicago area, with his repertoire extending across blues, jazz, pop, country, and even non-English songs.

He played second guitar behind Freddie Spruell, on the 1935 recording of the latter's song, "Let's Go Riding". The track later featured in the soundtrack of the 2001 film, Ghost World.
