Hollywood Romance - Claire Martin
With Matt Skelton’s 10-piece ‘Close to You Ensemble’


Expect to hear elegant, swinging settings of popular songs arranged especially by Callum Au and inspired by the legendary Songbook recordings of Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day and Sarah Vaughan as well as a collection of songs from the Shirley Horn/Johnny Mandel Grammy award-winning masterpiece Here’s to Life, which have been orchestrated especially by Tommy Lawrence.

Supporting the multi-award winning jazz singer and broadcaster Claire Martin is an ensemble of musicians chosen for their sound and empathy with this extraordinary music. They include the internationally acclaimed Tippett Quartet, the hugely talented trombonist Callum Au, Ronnie Scott’s Artistic Director and pianist James Pearson, Hugh Webb (harp), Jon Shenoy (woodwinds & saxophone), Jeremy Brown (Double Bass) and drummer/producer Matt Skelton.
