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. We hear that recorded meeting again on this week's Jazz Line-Up together with a performance of his "Jazz Calendar Suite".
