Album information

Claire Martin's debut album was chosen by The Times as one of its 'Records of the Year'. 

Acclaimed as the outstanding new British voice of the decade, Claire Martin achieved instant recognition with her debut album, The Waiting Game. It was among the bestselling jazz albums of 1992 and was chosen as a 'Record of the Year' by The Times and named #6  Critics' Choice for 1992 by The Wire.

The pianist and composer Richard Rodney Bennett, long renowned as a connoisseur of singers, concluded his liner notes for the album with the unabashed exclamation: "This record knocks me out." Tony Bennett was equally enthusiastic when he appeared on the same bill as Claire at the Glasgow International Jazz Festival. 

The Waiting Game sees Claire accompanied by a quartet featuring guitarist Jim Mullen.
