I cant explain how brilliant I think this is. It's so varied but jazz is there a lot. From a cool funky jazz, a late night smooth jazz and onto Wilko helping out an an amazing Roxette. I could imagine people listening to it and it just going past them. But fortunately for me I paid attention and it's brilliant.
Something strikes me that this is urban and Norman is a reluctant front man. Not sure if that's the case, but it's very understated and honest. Love it.
And his version of Billericay Dickie. For weeks now my mind has continually telling me not to hold a candle if you know where it's been. The jackpot is in the 'andle of a normal fruit machine :)
I hope you read Amazon reviews Norman - cos I'd like to say thanks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Norman Watt-Roy Faith & Grace 25 July 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
BEWARE! - Track 04 'Me, My Bass and I' is only 7 seconds long. It should actually be 6:31 but for some reason Amazon can't provide the full version, in spite of being informed of this strange anomaly. I downloaded the full album from Amazon and discovered this fault. Amazon was good enough to refund me the cost of the track, but were insistent that as the track was actually listed as only being 7 seconds long then they were actually doing me a favour in refunding it! Hopefully the bigger picture will eventually reveal itself to them, they'll fix the error and find a way to provide their customers with the actual track. Here's hoping.

The album itself is good. It's a proper little vehicle for NWR's chops, experiences and influences and although it seems a bit mixed up it in places, it satisfies. NWR reclaims some of his most famous bass lines on some tracks - namely 'Relax' FGH, 'The Magnificent Seven' The Clash and his classic,'Rhythm Stick', of which a slower version is used to very good effect on what may be the highlight of the album, 'Save it'. I'll let you find the rest. Only one minor gripe however, which is purely just my personal taste, which is that with the notable exception of the excellent 'Moiche Tantrum', there's an over use of a rock saxophone style that seems to offer nothing more than the obligatory repeated licks at a high pitch. This brings a couple of the tracks to a standstill in my view. Dig in, open up or leave it out I say, but that's just my personal gripe. In all, good gear for Blockheads and general bass fans.

Not as good as I hoped it to be. But the bass playing is brilliant. Norman has got to be one of the best bass players in the world.
