Barbara Martin – A Different View
"Jazzy originals in a torch style grace "A Different View" by Virginia singer-songwriter Barbara Martin, a mellow easy-to-hear record suited to quiet afternoons. Martin's distinctive low voice and great band tag these songs with a light spirit. Best Cuts: the sweet "Blue Skies" and the original Latin piece "Why". -Blues Revue. "Barbara Martin's compact combo swings hard with Martin's muted brass voice sketching short breath lines between Mac Walter's bending and sliding steel strings, Steve Wolf's jumpy upright bass and Joe Dockery's cleverly accented percussion. Martin's colorful and angular vocal instrument holds its own without ever jumping too far out front." -Dirty Linen.
