(2002, Fresh Sound)
This album made the top 10 List in the New York Times 

“Whether it’s singing standards or her own material, Rebecca Martin has the ability to communicate emotion in a direct, head-on way. Her performances on “Middlehope” have a real immediacy and there’s a certain urgency in her interpretations that make you sit up and listen. The unique texture and playing of the ensemble that’s backing her adds to the wonderfully noncategorizable quality of her records.”
- Brad Mehldau
