  • Description

    Outpost of Dreams introduces a new duo. Norma Winstone, as always quietly innovative as jazz singer and lyricist, brings her vocal subtlety and poetic sensibility to new pieces by pianist Kit Downes, and to compositions by Carla Bley, Ralph Towner, and John Taylor. The programme is completed with fresh perspectives on two traditional tunes, "Black Is The Colour" and "Rowing Home." Throughout Downes offers elegantly phrased accompaniment and adventurous interjections.

    Outpost of Dreams was recorded in Udine in April 2023.

    Norma Winstone: voice

    Kit Downes: piano
