'The First Lady of British Jazz' wins the accolade of Jazz Vocalist of the Year 2022
British Jazz Award Win
We are proud to announce that ‘Too Much in Love to Care' has been named ‘Best New Album' at the 2013 British Jazz Awards. Congratulations Claire!
'I'm so happy to have won this award,' said Claire, 'because Too Much In Love to Care is a very special recording to me for many reasons. I was deeply honoured to work with one of my hero's Kenny Barron and to have recorded in New York with such a stellar line up of the very best jazz musician's in the business was an absolute joy and privilige'.
Claire Martin's 2012 bestselling album was widely acclaimed as one of the finest of her career; it received several five star reviews with The Jazz Times describing her vocal talent equal to that of Ella Fitzgerald and Shirley Horn, two of Claire's idols. ‘Too Much in Love to Care' was Claire Martin's first US studio recording for fifteen years and guest stars Kenny Barron, 'one of the top jazz pianists in the world' (LA Times) along with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington.
