Liane Carroll and Claire Martin among the nominees
In The Studio: Claire Martin
Claire Martin and her all-Swedish trio are in the studio this week to record what will be her twentieth album for Linn! Claire and the trio have played to sell-out audiences in Sweden, London and Madrid, providing an exciting first chance for fans to preview this new material which will be released in 2019.
Claire's fascination with Sweden’s vibrant jazz scene began a decade ago, and via a shared love of songs she has cultivated a unique chemistry with the trio over the past two years. Uppsala-born pianist/arranger Martin Sjöstedt leads the trio comprising bassist Niklas Fernqvist and drummer Daniel Fredriksson. Sjöstedt, one of Sweden’s most gifted and talked about jazz musicians, has created imaginative new arrangements of contemporary material exclusively for Claire.
