If you're a fan of the recent reissues of classic British modern jazz from the late 60s / early 70s don't miss "Edge of Time" (& don't be put off by the "prog" sleeve!)

Seven tracks by the great vocalist Norma Winstone, co-composed & arranged by Ardley, Surman, Warren & (John) Taylor, played by a large ensemble of the usual suspects: Skidmore, Wheeler, Themen, Lowther, Osborne et al.

There's adventurous big band epics here, but also some lovely small group ballads and there's a slight jazz rock flavour too, with Gary Boyle on electric guitar; it's clear that the amazing assembled talent pulled out all the stops for Norma on this album.

Winstone's singing style was sometimes quite "out there" - doing with the voice what the sax & trumpet "free" players were doing with their instruments; her singing was also quite stylized & theatrical and, as such, is an acquired taste. Once you get used to it, however, the brilliance, beauty & intelligence of her singing is easy to appreciate & enjoy.

Norma of course has gone on to a successful career, particularly on the European/ECM scene, but this album was, I believe, her only solo effort from this vintage era. If you enjoy the Garrick & Westbrook albums featuring Winstone from the same period (Lovesongs, Lotus, Troppo etc) then you'll certainly like this.

Released originally in 1972 , this album is full of unabridged experimentation and wild creative musical expression , particularly from Norma herself .It is difficult to choose particular favourites because the whole collection of songs work so successfully as a cohesive whole. I highly recommend this unique piece of work to any lover of bold , risk-taking free Jazz .

This is one of those brilliant jazz -- or jazz-rock if you like -- releases that crept out of the British late 60s/early 70's scene to critical acclaim but relatively few sales. A large part of this was due to the fact that the record company, Decca/Argo, pressed up very few initial copies and never re-pressed. Even this CD reissue was a limited run on a Spanish label which now goes for very fancy prices. I've heard that the rights have now reverted back to Norma herself so it will be up to her if it surfaces again. In her sleevenote she suggests she was always a little lukewarm about its merits compared to her later works, but she's way too modest. It's one of the finest products of its genre or era.
