'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.'

Claire Martin & Ray Gelato - We've Got A World That Swings - SR


01 July 2016
SR

Beide sind Engländer, sowohl sie als er gehen auf die 50 zu. Die Sängerin Claire Martin und der Sänger Ray Gelato haben zum ersten Mal ein gemeinsames Album aufgenommen. „We've Got A World That Swings" ist eine Zeitreise in die 1950er und 60er Jahre, in die Welt des Frank Sinatra und der Eartha Kitt, des Nat King Cole und der Kay Starr. Es ist Musik, die man durchaus Jazz nennen kann, aber es ist Old-Time-Jazz aus der Zeit, als Jazz und Unterhaltungsmusik noch dasselbe waren.

„We've Got A World That Swings" bietet beste, vergnügliche und zeitlose Entertainermusik, bietet Songs für die Cocktailbar, für ein gutes Essen oder einfach nur so.
