Linn Records Top 10
The First Lady of British Jazz, Claire Martin, has won Best Vocalist at the British Jazz Awards on five separate occasions.
"The most gifted jazz singer this country has produced in twenty years." (Clive Davis, The Sunday Times)
Linn recording artist and BBC Radio 3 presenter Claire Martin has spent the last 20 years honing the craft of jazz singing. To worldwide critical acclaim she has established herself as a tour de force on the UK jazz scene, gaining many awards - including winning the British Jazz Awards six times - along the way.
Thanks to her jazz loving parents, Claire grew up in a household full of great music. She became a professional singer at 19, and three years later she realised her dream of singing at Ronnie Scott's legendary jazz club in Soho. Signed to Linn Records in 1984 Claire has since released 13 recordings with the label, collaborating with musical luminaries including Martin Taylor, John Martyn, Stephane Grappelli, Mark Nightingale, Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, Jim Mullen and Nigel Hitchcock on many of these.
Claire has performed all over Europe and Asia with her trio and she also performs regularly with Richard Rodney Bennett in an intimate duo setting both in England and in America where they play to sell out crowds at venues including the prestigious Algonquin Hotel in New York City. Claire is also a featured soloist with the Halle Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, The RTE Concert Orchestra, the BBC Big Band and the BBC Concert Orchestra. The BBC Radio 3 programme Jazz Line-Up, which she co-presents with Julian Joseph, is now in its 10th year and Claire has interviewed many of her musical heroes such as Pat Metheny, the late Michael Brecker, Brad Mehldau and Roy Hargrove.
Her latest recording, 'A Modern Art', prompted Jazz Times USA to claim: "She ranks among the four or five finest female jazz vocalists on the planet".
Claire continues to tour this album throughout 2010 and will be marking Sir Richard Rodney Bennett's 75th birthday in 2011 with a forthcoming recording on Linn Records entitled 'Witchcraft', where they celebrate the music of Cy Coleman.
