BBC Jazz Awards: Vocalist of the Year 2003 Claire Martin

Linn Records is delighted to congratulate Claire Martin as she is named Vocalist of the Year 2003 in the BBC Radio 2 and 3 Jazz Awards.

In a relationship spanning ten years, Linn Records has produced nine albums with Claire Martin. Her recorded and live performances receive continuing critical and popular acclaim. Claire Martin’s latest album on Linn Records, Too Darn Hot! (AKD 198) has been hailed widely as her best yet ("She is right at the top of her form" Crescendo & Jazz Music). On this latest release, Cole Porter's Too Darn Hot! appears alongside Berstein's Somethin's Coming from West Side Story. When I Fall In Love gets a typically candid yet tender remake.

This award is further proof that "the most exciting female jazz singer to emerge in the ‘90s" (Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD) continues to grow and mature as one of today’s most important jazz vocalists.
