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)

Maria Pia De Vito: Bergamo Jazz and Beyond

Read "Maria Pia De Vito: Bergamo Jazz and Beyond" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Non tutte le cantanti, attraverso l'espressione interpretativa, riescono a mettere in piena evidenza il mondo socio-culturale che sta all'origine delle singole canzoni da loro proposte. Proprio questa sembra essere la preoccupazione irrinunciabile di Maria Pia De Vito, che col suo lavoro ha sempre teso a esaltare l'interconnessione, strettissima, indispensabile, fra il livello colto e quello popolare, ...
