Album information

With a title song by the Brazilian troubadour Milton Nascimento, Make This City Ours was critically acclaimed, culminating in Claire being named 'Best Vocalist' at the 1997 BBC Jazz Awards.

In 1996 Claire Martin returned to New York to record Make This City Ours following enthusiastic reviews for her US debut.

Classic songs from the Golden Age of the Great American Songbook sit easily aside contemporary songs, including a Claire Martin original, 'Empty Bed' and Suzanne Cloud's 'Collagen Lips', a wry glance at the cult of the body beautiful. Claire handles this imaginative choice of material with ease and conviction; the New York Observer described the album as 'a meticulous blend of brilliant material and flawless craftsmanship'.

Claire is accompanied by an exceptional trans-Atlantic quintet: British pianist Gareth Williams and trumpeter Gerard Presencer play alongside American saxophonist Antonio Hart, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Gregory Hutchinson.
