'Year's Best Albums' 2016 Hi-Fi News

Album Choice: 'Ms Martin [is] an audiophile poster child...the results are irresistible...swing it does and the killer sound is a bonus.' Hi-Fi News 

4 stars 'It's an album that strikes all the right notes, played and sung with a real joie de vivre.' Jazzwise

'A superb collection of songs that swing from the outset and impeccably played that is guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face.' Jazz Views 


Following sellout tour dates of their new swing show, the duo took to the studio; Ray's jumpin' vocals and sax provide an ideal foil for Claire's velvety voice. The result is irresistible.

The song selection is a delicious serving of some of the most sumptuous morsels in the Great American Songbook including a classy R&B treatment of Billie Holiday's 'Now Baby Or Never'. The breadth of Claire's stylistic and vocal range is perfectly displayed among these tracks: listen to her boogaloo take on 'You Came A Long Way From St. Louis' or her interpretation of the melody on 'More Than You Know', which is a vocal masterclass.

Ray's brilliant original 'A Swingin' Affair' sets the tone for an album that is the perfect antidote to twenty-first century life. The duo is accompanied by a trio of world-class musicians: pianist David Newton (Stacey Kent), bassist Dave Whitford (Bobby Wellins Quartet) and drummer Sébastian de Krom (Jamie Cullum).

'Year's Best Albums' 2016


JazzTimes
'There are few, if any, finer jazz singers than Claire Martin. She's certainly the best the U.K. has produced, with her cunning mix of straight-ahead purity and interpretive legerdemain...There's an impressive bigness to their sound, mirroring the thunderous showmanship of Prima with Keely Smith.'
