Product description

Product Description

Witchcraft is the result of the dynamic collaboration between Claire Martin and Richard Rodney Bennett. This album contains a thoughtful selection of songs from the Cy Coleman songbook. Together, this collection weaves together the opposing talents of the sultry jazz sensation Claire Martin and the polished, savvy keyboard skills and compositional insight of Richard Rodney Bennett. Martin's strength as one of the best interpreters of the Great American Songbook shines through in this recording. The smoky elegance of her vocal sculpts itself around the smooth flowing textures of the piano accompaniment and the occasional vocal repartee of Bennett. The result of this established partnership is mesmerising music that takes you back to a wonderful and simpler time of yesteryear. ...touching,clever,beautifully poised and deceptively casual-sounding.The Observer.'Martin's jazz virtuosity adds another dimension.When her honeyed timbre slips into the lower register she captures the romance of a Ben Webster tenor solo.'(four stars)The Times.'...every one is a small gem.'(four stars)Jazzwise.'...the result is one timeless version of a song after another...Unequivocally recommended.'Jazz Journal.Martin's beautifully delivered interpretations are spot-on whatever the mood of the song...The Scotsman..a joy to hear. (four stars)Scotland on Sunday.

Format: Audio CD
Another great album from Claire Martin. There are songs sung by Richard Rodney Bennett, but his vocal is not quite as excellent as Claire's. He can play the piano very well though! The disc is SACD/CD hybrid. These days I am only playing CD and the sound does not disappoint. It sounds real and natural, and Claire's vocal sounds like live. Highly recommended.

This duo's 2005 album, "When Lights Are Low", revealed Sir Richard Rodney Bennett (piano and vocals) and Claire Martin (vocals) to be the Fred and Ginger of the jazz world: while he gives her class, she gives him sex appeal.
The same applies to this new collection of songs by composer Cy Coleman, though the distinctions are a bit more blurred.
Coleman's music isn't the most memorable, but the witty, sophisticated lyrics of his collaborators are a joy to hear.

Rodney's vocals are not up to it. It sort of spoils the whole album and makes this one of my least favourite Claire Martin cd's. Recording quality is pretty decent with the piano coming over well. Claire's vocals are extremely good as usual but the song selection disappoints. One to miss in my humble opinion.
