Richard Rodney Bennett Tribute

Claire Martin pays tribute to friend and performance colleague Richard Rodney Bennett. With a session the two performed in 2000, as well as Bennett's work Jazz Calendar Suite.

In year 2000 the same year that Jazz Line-Up began, Claire Martin and Richard Rodney Bennett recorded an intimate piano and voice session at the BBC Maida vale studios where they performed and talked spontaneously.
