2013 British Jazz Award Winner - Best New Album 'Too Much in Love to Care'

Named 'One of the Best Albums of 2012' by Jazz History Online.

Claire Martin has been a driving force behind the UK jazz scene for the past 25 years and has won many accolades, including a British Jazz Award no less than six times. Her massive contribution to UK jazz was noted in 2011 when she was the proud recipient of an O.B.E. in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for her services to music.

2011 saw Claire return to the States where she performed sell-out shows at The Lincoln Center with pianist Bill Charlap and The Algonquin Hotel in New York City with Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. New York City was also the location for her latest recording Too Much in Love to Care which she recorded with guest star Kenny Barron at Avatar Studios, one of the greatest recording facilities in the world. 

They were joined by bassist Peter Washington, drummer Kenny Washington and guest Steve Wilson on saxophone and flute.  

Too Much in Love to Care is a collection of classic romantic songs and beautiful ballads from The Great American Songbook with many of the tracks recorded in just one take, remarkable as it was the first time Claire and Kenny had played together.
