Fiona's Comments

The unmistakable vocal dexterity of Norma Winstone sets a longing sadness for a very classy band arrangement.

About the Album

Recorded in March 2016 by the University of Toronto Jazz Orchestra, Winter Sweet if from the album Sweet Ruby Suite, which pays tribute to Canadian-born Kenny Wheeler, one of the greatest composers in contemporary jazz who passed in September of 2014. Sweet Ruby Suite features long-time Kenny Wheeler collaborator, vocalist Norma Winstone, along with special guest artist David Liebman on soprano saxophone. Wheeler left behind a rich and abundant legacy of compositions and Sweet Ruby Suite is a wonderful work that is relatively unknown. The University of Toronto Jazz Orchestra (UTJO) is now in the fifth year under the leadership of Gordon Foote. The band is quickly becoming one of Canada’s finest university jazz orchestras and is the flagship group of the Jazz Studies Program at the University of Toronto.
