Album Notes
Artwork: An original drawing by Norman Sumpton.

This 1978 recording of Romanza from the South Ella studios sessions in Hull, UK was made during one of Norman Sumpton's less tonal phases juxtaposing the familiar against the unfamiliar, creating excruciating tensions then effortlessly resolving them but maintaining colour, form, flavour, texture and "staining".

With most copies of his first album destroyed in a fire at the distributor's warehouse and subsequent releases dogged by legal disputes it's only now many more people are able to enjoy the delicacy of his touch and inspired interpretations of ageless classics. New recording sessions are planned as this is released with an album due out in October 2013.
