Canadisk jazz møder Engelske solister og Nordisk rytmegruppe. 

Juno Award vindere The North møder her den legendariske engelske vokalist Norma Winstone og trompet ekvilibristen Percy Pursglove. 

Norma Winstone har igennem hele hendes karriere dannet makkerpar med den fantastiske Engelsk/Canadiske flugelhornspiller Kenny Wheeler, både på Kennys plader såvel som i orkestret Azimuth. 

Hun er idag over 80 år, men er stadig i absolut topform. 

Det er også Wheelers musik, som har gjort mødet mellem Pursglove, Braid og Murley. De tre har “on and off” spillet og turneret med Kenny Wheeler. 

På den baggrund udgiver The North featuring Percy Pursglove: Plays the Music of Kenny Wheeler. – udgives oktober 2019. 

Så at præsentere dette ensemble med Norma Winstone i front er en drøm for alle! Der er lagt op til et historisk møde med internationale musikere, som vil give lytteren en uforglemmelig aften! 

English: 

Canadian Jazz meets English soloists and Nordic Rhythm team. 

Juno Award winners The North meets the legendary English vocalist Norma Winstone and the amazing trumpeter Percy Pursglove. 

Norma Winstone has thru her whole career performed along with the English/Canadian flugelhorn player Kenny Wheeler, both on Wheelers own album and in their collective band: Azimuth. Today Norma has turned 80 years old, but she is still going strong. 

It is also Wheelers music that has got Pursglove, Braid and Murley together. They have all performed on and off with Kenny Wheeler, and he has been like a mentor for them. 

On that background they will release the album: The North featuring Percy Pursglove: Plays the Music of Kenny Wheeler. – October 2019. 

So to present this ensemble along with Norma Winstone in front is a dream come thru. With this international constellation there will be an evening the listener will not forget.
