With experience playing Brazilian percussion, Martin met Chuck Mangione and began touring with his band. At age 22, Martin hit the road with full force as Mangione's percussionist. Before the end of his four-year stint with Mangione, Billy covered the drum chair. With Mangione in need of a break, another turning point loomed around the corner for Martin.

Martin fell in with the Downtown musicians of New York City and began playing with a number of bands on a regular basis. He played with Bobby Previte's ensemble at Next Wave, Sam Bennett's Chunk, Ned Rothenburg's Double Band, Oren Bloedow's band, John Lurie's Lounge Lizards, John Zorn's Masada (an electric version) and the Sweet Lizard Illtet (where he received the nick name illy B). While playing in Lurie's band, Martin discovered a rare book on Jean-Michel Basqiat at Lurie's apartment. Both Lurie and Basquiat effected Martin profoundly. Martin began hanging out with Lurie after practice and while on tour to sit around and draw, an experience he also shared with Bob Moses. Little did Martin know, but Moses would turn out to be a catalyst behind the forming of the now popular Medeski, Martin & Wood.
