Claire Martin talks to American singer and pianist Diane Schuur who was born blind, learned to play the piano by ear and developed her voice at a very early age. She made her first recording at age 10 with a Dinah Washington song and her latest CD Some Other Times has just been released.

Also featured is Brazilian pianist and singer Elaine Elias, playing music from her current CD Plays Bill Evans, in concert at Ronnie Scott's. In her teens, Elaine carefully transcribed all of Bill Evans's musical notes, from which she drew inspiration for this disc.
