Claire Martin - Secret Love - UK European Jazz Website Review


01 September 2004
UK European Jazz Website Review
UK European Jazz Website Review

This beautifully produced and recorded CD for Linn Records contains no slicked up pop songs or watered down standards - its straight ahead, hold on to your hats, by the seat of the pants jazz.

The whole project works so well that it's hard to believe its British. From the arrangements to the recording, form the production to the decision not to include "Fever" all prove that Linn is on to a real winner. Claire Martin sings jazz like a nightingale and will, no doubt, mature and grow in stature and, with luck and prevailing wind, she'll be up there with the best of them in terms of popularity. She's already passed most of them as far as her craft is concerned.
