Claire Martin
With The Montpellier Cello Quartet

‘The most gifted jazz singer England has produced in twenty years’The Sunday Times

Claire Martin OBE brings her wealth of experience as a jazz vocalist into a brand new arena with the Brighton based Montpellier Cello Quartet. This exciting new venture combines her love of the Great American Songbook and popular classics with brand new arrangements especially commission for this project by internationally renowned composers including Sir Richard Rodney Bennet, Mark Anthony Turnage, and Django Bates.

Unlike anything Claire has ever done before, this chamber-jazz adventure promises to be a magical fusion that brings a new sonic perspective to songs such as Kurt Weills’My Ship’,  Tom Waits’Old Boyfriend’s’ and Lennon & McCartney’sShe’s Leaving Home’.
