Secret Love - The Scotsman


15 October 2004
The Scotsman
Kenny Mathieson

CLAIRE Martin stands out among the current plethora of identikit interpreters of jazz standards. She succeeds in finding a new twist in her hip-but-sophisticated interpretations of standards with no feeling of being artificial or contrived. That even applies to such familiar fare as the title track or Berlin's Cheek To Cheek - taken at a rattling tempo. Her core trio - led by pianist Gareth Williams - is a top-drawer attraction in itself. Guests include guitarist Jim Mullen and saxophonist Bobby Wellins.
