B eing 83 hasn't discouraged Kenny Wheeler from another personal first: this is his debut as a musical contextualiser Norma Winstone & London Vocal Project - Mirrors other people's poems, not just those of his longtime vocal muse Norma Winstone. Big-choir renditions of texts as sharply personal and precise as lyric poems present some tricky challenges: the most idiosyncratic or surreal poetic visions can be made churchily formal, and jazz's rhythmic disjunctions can undermine meanings.

Wheeler's rare imagination often makes this unusual venture gleam, but the words do recede in the full-ensemble parts, and the most absorbing passages occur when Winstone, at her coolly ecstatic best, takes the spotlight.

The singer's lovely rendition of Yeats's The Lover Mourns against the soft swirls of The Lover Mourns - Kenny Wheeler choir, her dreamy drift into Through the Looking Glass with some punchy Lockheart tenor sax in the brisker later stagesas well as the command of Wheeler's poignant melodies on Smith's The Hat, The Bereaved Bleeding The Orchid - Smashing Pumpkins* - Zeitgeist and The Deathly Child, are standouts of an uneven but intriguing addition to Wheeler's remarkable canon.
