Regular price $19.99 Sale

Claire Martin concentrates on her core jazz-based strengths, delivering pithy, worldly-wise lyrics with warmth and intelligence, interacting with a sparky, vigorous band.

From an exciting new arrangement of Something's Coming from Bernstein's West Side Story, to Joni Mitchell's Blue Motel Room arranged by jazz singer Ian Shaw, the album mixes jazz standards with new arrangements to create an original showcase for Claire's clever musicality and superb vocals. 

Too Darn Hot! features an enviable line-up of some of Britain's top jazz talents (Gareth Williams - piano, Geoffrey Keezer - piano and electric piano, Richard Cottle - keyboards and organ, Geoff Gascoyne - double bass, Laurence Cottle - bass guitars, Clark Tracey - drums, Ian Thomas - drums, Nigel Hitchcock - saxes, Phil Robson - guitar, Miles Bould - percussion, Ian Shaw - additional vocals) plus the Tapestry String Quartet.
