Album information

Perfect Alibi is a diverse mix of modern classics, featuring special guest John Martyn.

Presenting an extensive variety of songs that demonstrate Claire's stunning vocal talents, Perfect Alibi includes tracks written by Phoebe Snow, Todd Rundgren, Jimi Hendrix, Laura Nyro, Julia Fordham and John Martyn. This album saw Claire Martin lead the jazz world into pop-crossover territory before Norah Jones and Madeleine Peyroux made this style an accepted genre featuring Jimi Hendrix's 'Up From The Skies', the Stylistics' 'People Make The World Go Round', Donny Hathaway's 'More Than You'll Ever Know', and Laura Nyro's 'He's A Runner'.

John Martyn, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2008, shares vocal duties with Claire on his own song 'Man In The Station'. Claire is accompanied by top class musicians such as Arnie Somogyi, Mornington Lockett and Paul Stacey (guitarist with the Black Crowes), who also produced the album.
