4th May 2024 Norma + Kit Downes: Cheltenham Parabola Theatre Review in London Jazz News 8/5/24:
"In complete contrast, the next event featured Kit Downes on piano with vocalist Norma Winstone. This was a duo performance featuring intimate music that will appear on an ECM album later this year.  Winstone may be 82, but she neither looks nor sounds it. She may use less vocal pyrotechnics than in her youth, but instead her voice has a warmth that you can touch. Downes has been a regular at Cheltenham for many years, and has graduated from bright newcomer to legend in no time. He has always been a fine solo pianist, and we heard some of that, but in this duo he has adapted that skill into being the perfect accompanist."
