Claire Martin and Richard Rodney Bennett - When Lights Are Low - The Sunday Post

You could call Claire Martin and Sir Richard Rodney Bennett's collaboration "When Lights Are Low" (Linn Records) a disc of high-brow music stars' "jazz-aoke". The classical and film score composer previously played piano on the jazz diva's "Secret Love" album, but here he shares the singing duties with her on a range of classic melancholy tunes old and new. And to good effect. As always with Linn, the recording sounds fantastic.
