Claire Martin - He Never Mentioned Love - Yorkshire Post
An exceptionally fine album from one of the best singers around. Martin is paying tribute to one of her heroes, the late Shirley Horn, and the results are gorgeous. Never in better voice, her readings of signature songs, including If You Go and Everything Must Change are spot-on. Her timing and phrasing are just right and the emotional weight she brings to the songs makes them come alive. There are potent guest spots from guitarist Jim Mullen and Gerard Presencer on flugelhorn, along with fine piano from Gareth Williams.
