"..If you're a Claire Martin fan, this disc is no-brainer. Just a casual lover of really good music? Ditto. Very highly recommended!" 5/5 stars. (Audiophile Audition, Tom Gibbs, 2007)

"This is a gorgeous piece of work. Claire Martin's not short of accolades (the most recent being a BBC Jazz Award nomination), but ultimately listeners seek out the proof of the pudding. Well, here's an unmissable hour's worth of exactly that, in which Martin celebrates one of her most significant influences, Shirley Horn. There's no shortage of recordings on which singers cover songs made famous by other singers, describe the results as a 'tribute', then reap the benefits of listeners' displaced enthusiasm. This, however, is something quite different. Horne was mainly known for investing slow, insinuating ballads with an extraordinary degree of emotional intensity, which in itself is one of the trickiest areas of jazz singing. Martin not only succeeds in this but makes these songs her own. The recording is immaculate, but my advance copy is a CD-only version, so the SACD should be even better." 5/5 stars. (BBC Music Magazine, 2007)

"Claire Martin dedicates this set of 13 songs to the memory of Shirley Horn "who takes my breath away". There are few singers who could stand comparison with the late mistress of vocal poise, but Martin has a perfect jazz voice - warm, textured and subtle - which allows her to venture calmly into the daunting, ultra-slow territory which was Horn's speciality. She does it quite beautifully, breathing new life into songs like You're Nearer, with the lightest of touches. Two new songs, her own Slowly but Shirley and Ian Shaw's Slow Time, match the mood seamlessly. Perfect accompaniment, especially from guitarist Jim Mullen and pianist Gareth Williams." (The Observer, Dave Gelly, 2007)

Produced by Laurence Cottle

This stylish tribute to the late and legendary American songstress Shirley Horn, originally released in 2007, captures an intimate and more mature sound from Martin.

Re-issued on CD in 2011, 'He Never Mentioned Love' sees the UK's finest Jazz singer investigate songs memorably performed by her greatest influence, with no traces of borrowing or imitation.

Mojo described it as "Martin's best album", no small praise considering her award-winning discography.
