Album information

Claire Martin and Ray Gelato are artists at the top of their game; with a wealth of bestselling jazz albums, extensive UK tours and established fan bases, this recording is a tour de force.

Following sellout tour dates of their new swing show, the duo took to the studio; Ray's jumpin' vocals and sax provide an ideal foil for Claire's velvety voice. The result is irresistible and earned the album a listing on the Hi-Fi News 'Year's Best Albums' list in 2016.

The song selection is a delicious serving of some of the most sumptuous morsels in the Great American Songbook including a classy R&B treatment of Billie Holiday's 'Now Baby Or Never'. The breadth of Claire's stylistic and vocal range is perfectly displayed among these tracks: listen to her boogaloo take on 'You Came A Long Way From St. Louis' or her interpretation of the melody on 'More Than You Know', which is a vocal masterclass.

Ray's brilliant original 'A Swingin' Affair' sets the tone for an album that is the perfect antidote to twenty-first century life. The duo is accompanied by a trio of world-class musicians: pianist David Newton (Stacey Kent), bassist Dave Whitford (Bobby Wellins Quartet) and drummer Sébastian de Krom (Jamie Cullum).
