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)
