Claire Martin - Witchcraft - The Observer

It's hard to believe that it was almost six years ago that they first got together. It seemed so unlikely at the time, this song-and-piano partnership between a notably feisty jazz vocalist and an esteemed composer. But now it's accepted that their albums and shows set the standard for classic interpretations of popular songs. This time the work of Cy Coleman gets the treatment - touching, clever, beautifully poised and deceptively casual-sounding. Despite the huge success of songs such as the title number, Coleman's name is the least well-known of the great songwriters. This classy selection should help to put that right.
