Elevation by Sanders, wow man, a heavy, HEAVY listen! I tend to dig out Village of the Pharoahs and Wisdom Through Music a lot though when I'm in the mood for Sanders.
Whats the Winstone solo stuff like IanB? Love her work on Labyrinth by Ian Carr and Nucleus (fact, its one of my planned reviews for Unsung)??
Edge of Time is really good and if you like Nucleus etc then it is the proverbial "must have". I like Somewhere Called Home a lot too though that is very much what you would expect from an ECM Ballads record. It has a strong chamber music feel to it. The weakness for me are the sections that feature Tony Coe on clarinet. He has that English light romantic sentimental whimsy thing that reminds me of John Harle's soprano and I find it a bit hard to take. John Taylor is great on it. Distances from 2008 is more straight up balladry but I far prefer this band and what ever time has done to her range that voice just gets me every time.
And if you like Norma you've got to hear the new Magma record.
