Norma Winstone


Winstone has a lissome voice, agile and expressive, and she's a fine improviser, besides. That's not to say she's a vocal athlete, however; although she's known for her wordless improvisations, Winstone is a fine interpreter of lyrics and composed melody—a plain- speaking, rhythmically direct singer who gets to the heart of the matter quickly and effectively. Winstone played piano and organ in her youth. She began singing semi-professionally by the age of 17, influenced by conventional jazz vocalists. During the '60s she became attracted to the jazz avant garde. She played in groups led by pianists {{m: Michael Garrick = 6963}} and {{m: Mike Westbrook = 11283}}; she also sang with such forward-thinking musicians as saxophonist {{m: John Surman = 4735}}, flugelhornist {{m: Kenny Wheeler = 11294}}, composer Michael Gibbs, and pianist John Taylor (whom she married in 1972)

Read "Dave Stapleton:  Moving Edition Records With The Horizon" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The old market town of Newbury lies an hour or so from London, on the edge of the chalky Berkshire Downs.
