Martin Oliver "Marty" Grosz (born February 28, 1930) is an American jazz guitarist, banjoist, vocalist and composer born in Berlin, Germany, perhaps most notable for his work with Bob Wilber, performing with and doing arrangements for him.[1] Grosz has also been involved in projects involving Kenny Davern, Dick Sudhalter and Keith Ingham.

During the 1970s, he was a member of Soprano Summit.

In 1986 Grosz joined The Classic Jazz Quartet, along with Dick Wellstood, Joe Muranyi, and Dick Sudhalter. He played, sang and wrote most of the group's arrangements. He has also performed at concerts with Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, and Charlie Byrd.[2]

Grosz' father is the German-American painter George Grosz.

Grosz was featured on The State of Things (radio show) from WUNC-FM on April 13, 2011.
