The album which led to a BBC Jazz Award - Best Vocalist for Claire Martin in 1997. 

'The city is hers. If Joshua had his trumpet then Claire Martin has her voice.' Audio Quarterly

Download includes - cover art

Available on disc as part of the boxed set The Early Years Anthology

Following enthusiastic reviews for her appearances in the United States, Claire recorded Make This City Ours New York. With a title song by the Brazilian troubadour Milton Nascimento, Make This City Ours also included another Claire Martin original, 'Empty Bed' and a wry glance at the cult of the body beautiful in Suzanne Cloud's 'Collagen Lips'.

Make This City Ours - her fifth CD for Linn - features a potent international line-up including the American 'young lion' saxophonist Antonio Hart. The American contigent on the record was completed by Peter Washington on bass and Gregory Hutchinson on drums.

The Observer review read: 'The album has a vitality essential to jazz, thanks in no small part to an immaculate backing band who sound as though they had as good a time as Martin making this fine album.'
