Claire Martin er Europas førende jazzsangerinde, med 12 anmelderroste soloalbums. Til april 2017 kommer hun til Danmark og hylder en af hendes største inspirationskilder: ELLA FITZGERALD, som i 2017 kunne været fyldt 100 år.

Claire Martin har vundet den prestigefulde ”BBC Jazz Award” intet mindre end syv gange, og har sunget med sublime mandlige vokalister som Curtis Stigers, Jamie Cullum og Kurt Elling. I december 2011 blev hun hædret af det britiske kongehus med en OBE, for hendes solide indsats på den internationale jazzscene.

Claire Martin har en varm stemme og en elegant og forførende stil. Hun evner at favne jazzen i al sin helhed fra det klassiske standardrepertoire over nyere kompositioner – ved denne koncert med særligt fokus på Ella Fitzgerald. 

“Claire is unbeatable and sets the standard for all us singers.” (Jamie Cullum)
