Norma Winstone

Descansado: Songs For Films

ecm



CD

Released: 16th Feb 2018

£13.99


a creative journey into the world of cinema, norma concocts new arrangements of classic SCORES by Nino Rota, Michel Legrand, William Walton, Bernard Herrmann, and Ennio Morricone.

Several of the arrangements incorporate new words by Norma Winstone who, in addition to being one of the great jazz singers, has long been a sensitive lyricist. For this project, her acclaimed trio with Gesing and Venier is augmented by two special guests: Norwegian improvising percussionist Helge Andreas Norbakken and Italian classical cellist Mario Brunello. Norbakken is well-known to ECM listeners for his recordings with Jon Balke, Mathias Eick and Jon Hassell, while Brunello is highly regarded in classical and contemporary music circles for his interpretive versatility.
