Claire Martin - The Very Best Of Claire Martin - Every Now and Then - Jazzwise

What was most striking about this performance was the quality of Claire Martin's voice, equally adept at gutsy in-your-face dynamism as with the more overtly conversational style espoused by Stacey Kent and Diana Krall, both of whom she surpasses purely in terms of emotional range and timbral nuance. Add to this her flawless pitching, clarity of melodic line, exemplary timing and indisputable stage presence and you clearly have an exceptional talent.
