Martin Drew (born 11 February 1944 in Northampton) is an English jazz drummer who has played with Ronnie Scott (1975-1995) and Oscar Peterson (1974-2004).[1]

He had a quintet called "Our Band" with Dick Morrissey, tenor saxophone, Jim Mullen, guitar (originally Louis Stewart), John Critchinson, piano, and Ron Mathewson, double bass.

He also had a quartet with Mornington Lockett, tenor saxophone, Gareth Williams, piano, and Laurence Cottle, electric bass.

Drew was also a member of a trio led by Eddie Thompson.

In 2000, with Mornington Lockett he formed the Celebrating The Jazz Couriers quintet, playing the music of the original Jazz Couriers, a group led by Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes. This new band was completed by Nigel Hitchcock, tenor saxophone, Steve Melling, piano, and Andrew Cleyndert, double bass.

The New Couriers band reformed in 2003 with Paul Morgan, double bass, Jim Hart, vibraphone, Mornington Lockett, tenor saxophone, and Steve Melling, piano.
