ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A seasoned male jazz vocalist who scorns the Great American Songbook in favor of...originals? Acclaimed singer and lyricist Mark Winkler (recorded by Dianne Reeves, David Benoit, Joe Sample, Wayne Shorter) shares his best songs, culled from his collaborations with Mike Melvoin, Dan Seigel, and Joshua Redman, as well as his hit Off-Broadway jazz musical “Play it Cool."

Backed by some of the jazz world’s most respected names – Anthony Wilson, Bob Sheppard, and Cheryl Bentyne all guest – Winkler proves that this thing we call “the jazz standard” is alive and well. On his 9th album, and his first American release since 2003’s “Mark Winkler Sings Bobby Troup,” Mark Winkler gets it right. Liner notes by Mark Murphy!

“Winkler lays it out so pretty, so smooth...witty and straight no matter what! Buy this record, write Mark a letter of thanks, pour another drink... and play it again and again.” -- Mark Murphy

“Winkler’s 'In a Lonely Place' is a reminder that classic,
American songbook type tunes are still being written.”
-- Don Heckman, LA Times

“There isn’t anything fake about Mark Winkler. He’s the real
deal, and cool -- Dave Frishberg cool, swimming pool cool,
Sunset Strip cool.” -- Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times

“His original tunes already sound like standards...Winkler is destined to become an important American composer as more
people understand what a canny writer he is.” -- Myrna Daniels, L.A. Jazz Scene

"If 'Till I Get It Right,' the title of Mark Winkler’s first disc since the wonderful 'Sings Bobby Troup' and first U.S. released set of originals since 'Easy The Hard Way,' is something of a question, its answer is an emphatic: Get it right? How about perfect! Always sly and cool yet passionate as a vocalist, his wonderfully compelling, distinctively vivid lyrics tell tales that are clever and witty one minute, lovelorn and heartbreaking the next. Working with a wide range of musical collaborators, from Eli Brueggemann and Marilyn Harris to Joshua Redman, Mike Melvoin and Dan Siegel, Winkler explores his love of jazz deeply but delves with equal joy into pop, blues and Brazilian territory. 'Till I Get It Right' does just that, adding another magical destination in the Wonderful World of Winkler." – Jonathan Widran, JAZZIZ

"Wink gets it right! I mean, from the opening, title song, you know he’s on. But don’t give up – there is a gamut to be run. I’d play the whole CD if I were you. With a little help from his friends, Mark comes up with twelve good ones. Great singing, too." -- Bob Dorough

Host of Jazz 4A sunday night
Another winner from Mark Winkler, great lyrics, just enough accompaniment. He writes, and sings tunes that would have been done by Bobby troup, Buddy Greco an Blossom Dearie, in any eneviroment. Mark is the current hipster working in jazz today. Congratulations.

Original and Cool
As a fellow pianist and composer, I have the utmost respect for what Mark Winkler and his collaborators have accomplished on this excellent recording. They did something ORIGINAL. Outstanding arrangements and composition, and outstanding performances from all the band including the phenomenal special guests. I hope this great recording starts a much-needed new trend in the jazz field. I can say that Winkler GETS IT RIGHT!
