Claire Martin - The Early Years Anthology - Yorkshire Post
22 September 2008Yorkshire Post
This splendid collection brings together Martin's first four albums, and serves to underline that she's not just one of the best jazz singers in Britain, she's one of the best anywhere. There are some terrific performances here, from You Hit the Spot
through well-worn standards like When The Sun Comes Out
, but one of the things the collection brings into focus is Martin's knack for finding unfamiliar material and performing it with such gusto it makes the listener wonder why such songs never became standards.
