‘Claire Martin ranks among the four or five finest female jazz vocalists on the planet’  JazzTimes

‘Worldclass’ The Times

‘Nikki Iles captures the light touch, ironic logic and irresistible pulse of an in-his- prime Bill Evans.The late pianists impressionism has been much imitated but it has rarely been mastered with the freshness and composure that Iles and her close-knit piano trio deliver.’ The Financial Times 4 stars ****
