Since Claire Martin first burst onto the UK jazz scene in 1991, she has built an enviable reputation as Britain's finest female jazz singer. "Claire Martin - The Early Years Anthology" showcases her matchless talent and for the first time brings together her acclaimed first four studio albums on Linn Records. This is a four CD collection at budget price in a beautifully presented glossy digipack complete with stunning new artwork.
* "The Waiting Game", Claire Martin's debut album, was chosen by The Times as one of their "Records of the Year" and was the album that firmly established Claire Martin as a future star
* "Devil May Care" cemented Claire Martin's place in the UK jazz scene and displayed her skills as a songwriter as well as her fine sense of timing and phrasing.
* Released in the year that Claire received the "Rising Star Award" at the British Jazz Awards, "Old Boyfriends" is an eclectic selection of songs (including the title song by Tom Waits) backed by a superb band.
* Produced by Joel E. Siegel and recorded in New York, "Make This City Ours" was the album which led to Claire Martin's first "Best Vocalist " BBC Jazz Award in 1997.
It's no exaggeration to say that Claire Martin is the most phenomenal vocal talent yet to appear on the British jazz scene.
