A long-overdue collection of the groundbreaking work of jazz vocalist Norma Winstone! Winstone was one of the hippest singers on the European scene of the early 70s – and a great talent who crossed many boundaries to push the definition of vocal jazz. Later work was often a bit too flowery, but the tracks on this set are from her prime early 70s recordings for labels like London or Argo – recorded with the cream of Brit jazz rock, players like Mike Westbrook, Paul Rutherford, Mike Osborne, Michael Garrick, Ian Carr, and Kenny
Wheeler. The focus here is on tracks that have a good groove – mostly modal, and rolling along at an excellent pace on most cuts. Titles include "Bull Dance", "Enjoy The Day", "Original Peter", "Towards Tranquility", "Songs For A Child", and "The Heart Is A Lotus".
