Secret Love - Yorkshire Post

The hype and megabucks deals afforded some of the current crop of singers have passed Claire Martin by, which is very unfair because she's better than most of them. This is another peach of an album by a performer whose name is a byword for class, individual style and invention. On standards and well-chosen lesser-known material, Martin gives every song the stamp of personal style and keen musicianship. A starry supporting cast including pianist Richard Rodney Bennett, tenorman Bobby Wellins and guitarist Jim Mullen plays its heart out for Claire, who responds with brilliant performances of Secret Love, But Beautiful, Something Cool and God Give Me Strength. There hasn't been a better jazz vocal album this year.
