Description

Norma Winstone's album 'Descansado' is a creative journey into the world of cinema with new arrangements by Klaus Gesing and Glauco Venier of music by Nino Rota, Michel Legrand, William Walton, Bernard Herrmann, and Ennio Morricone for the movies of Scorsese, Godard, Wenders, Jewison, Zeffirelli, Olivier and more.

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.

'Descansado Music for Films' was recorded at ArteSuono Studio in Udine, Italy, in March 2017 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Personnel: Norma Winstone (voice), Klaus Gesing (bass clarinet, soprano saxophone), Glauco Venier (piano), Helge Andreas Norbakken (percussion), Mario Brunello (violoncello, violoncello piccolo)
