Descansado – Songs for Films is the trio’s fifth recording together and the fourth for the ECM label, boasting a beguiling set of personal interpretations of these broad-ranging and often overlooked songs. Norma is one of the UK’s most cherished improvising artists. Her crystalline tone, vast range and open versatility have graced an astonishing international performance and recording career that stretches back over decades. The dynamic Manchester-based South African cellist Abel Selaocoe joins with the effortless Italian pianist and the incisive German reeds player for this concert, adding an extra international dimension to their universal sound.
