Claire Martin "When Lights Are Low" SACD
The eleventh studio album by five-times BBC Jazz Award Winner Claire Martin, on this occasion with pianist, singer and composer Richard Rodney Bennett.
'Order this CD pronto: it's a gem.' Scotland on Sunday
The unstoppable duo of Claire Martin and Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, a partnership polished over two decades, originally released their stylish duo album When Lights Are Low in 2006 to critical acclaim.
Re-issued in Sir Richard's 75th birthday year to partner their new duo album Witchcraft.
Claire Martin and Richard Rodney Bennett are on top of their game in this smoothly elegant collection of terrific, but not overly-exposed songs. This is an inventive and charming selection of material now getting some deserved attention. The titles reflect the vast knowledge and innate good taste of these artists and the entire CD is a treat from start to finish. Fans of this distinguished pair will be thrilled to add this recording to their collection, while those hearing them for the first time will quickly join the great numbers of us who enjoy them so much.
