Linn Records is pleased to release on Multichannel Super Audio CD Claire Martin's album, Too Darn Hot!, widely considered to be her best recorded work to date.   From Something's Coming from Bernstein's West Side Story, in an exciting new arrangement, to Joni Mitchell's Blue Motel Room, arranged by jazz singer Ian Shaw, the album has many jazz standards and delightful new arrangements of songs from other popular music genres.   Too Darn Hot! is Claire's ninth album on Linn Records.

Claire Martin has awarded a BBC Jazz Award in the Best Vocalist category, for the second time, and in 2004, Claire was delighted to have been asked to co-present the awards with fellow singer, Ian Shaw, at a star-studded ceremony in London on July 29th.
