Claire Martin - Perfect Alibi - Inverness Courier
Also capable of attracting a new and young audience, this London singer continues to extend the boundaries of jazz singing with material by Dusty Springfield, Jimi Hendrix and others. The four big-band numbers featuring Inverness's Nicole Thomson on Trombone are the most conventionally jazzy but other songs are not without swing.
Paul Stacey's arrangement of Julia Fordham's "More Than I Can Bear" could be another "Fever".
Not-quite-jazz FM listeners will love Martin's smooth, soulful sophistication and even purists will be tempted to slip into this comfortable for late-night listening.
