Claire Martin - Believin' it - The Arts Desk (AOTY)

A recording that unfailingly touched the heart and lifted the soul, my Album of the Year is Claire Martin’s Believin’ It. In addition to stellar reimaginings of Joni Mitchell (“You Dream Flat Tires”), Ivan Lins (“Love Dance”), Curtis Lewis (“The Great City”) and more, Martin’s spectacular, rapid-fire delivery of the melodic line on Pat Metheny’s “Timeline”, for which she penned new lyrics, was a thing of wonder.
