About Norma Winstone

Although she studied formally as a pianist, Norma Winstone decided to sing and became a professional by her mid-teens. Her earliest work was in jazz-influenced popular song but she soon gravitated towards the modern end of the jazz spectrum. In the '60s, and '70s she became known for her musical associations with Michael Garrick, and alongside Kenny Wheeler and her husband John Taylor, in the trio Azimuth. She also worked with leading contemporary musicians, including Ralph Towner, Mike Westbrook, and Eberhard Weber. In the late-'80s/early-'90s, Winstone returned to the classic repertoire of earlier decades and in 1995 she recorded WELL KEPT SECRET with veteran pianist Jimmy Rowles. In 1998, she recorded her first duo album with her husband, LIKE SONG, LIKE WEATHER.
