Claire Martin - Perfect Alibi - Inverness Courier


01 September 2000
Inverness Courier
Inverness Courier

Also capable of attracting a new and young audience, this London singer continues to extend the boundaries of jazz singing with material by Dusty Springfield, Jimi Hendrix and others. The four big-band numbers featuring Inverness's Nicole Thomson on Trombone are the most conventionally jazzy but other songs are not without swing.

Paul Stacey's arrangement of Julia Fordham's "More Than I Can Bear" could be another "Fever".

Not-quite-jazz FM listeners will love Martin's smooth, soulful sophistication and even purists will be tempted to slip into this comfortable for late-night listening.
