Out now: Odysseus
Spontaneously composed from beginning to end, Odysseus—a striking duo venture with the iconic guitarist Ben Monder—juxtaposes an entire journey’s-worth of Winstone’s darting melodies against Monder’s haunting glacial soundscapes.

Released in the summer of 2018 and featuring stand-out London talents Charlie Stacey (p), Jamie Murray (d) and Mikele Montolli (b), Outer Spaces is a contemporary jazz recording that draws inspiration from an expansive array of musical traditions. Says Winstone: “I want my compositions to reflect exactly who I am and what I want to hear—and, simultaneously, to allow for everyone in the band to make the music truly their own.”
