Format: Audio CD
Everyone from Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, and Diana Krall to the Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt, and Asleep at the Wheel have recorded songs by the inimitable songwriter (singer, actor, bon vivant, raconteur...) Bobby Troup, 1918-1999. Amazingly, no one had recorded an entire album from the vast, remarkable Troup songbook. Until now.
Having worked for four years (so far) on a Bobby Troup biography, I must confess to being a bit nervous hearing that Mark Winkler was about to release a recording filled with Bobby Troup songs. I saw John Pizzarelli and Mark Murphy as the leading candidates to perform an homage to Troupie. I knew little of Winkler and that being limited to sampling one of his 80's albums when he was into a far different style.
Fresh from Amazon upon its release, "Mark Winkler Sings Bobby Troup" landed in my CD changer and, for the first two songs, I held my breath. By the time Winkler finished a witty, hip "Hungry Man" and a thoughtful, vo-cool "You're Looking At Me", I exhaled, smiling broadly through the next 11 cuts. Great band. Great sound. Totally "50's West Coast" singer. 5 stars to the tribute album that Bobby Troup has deserved for decades.
Listen to "Lemon Twist" and you picture Winkler holding a cold glass in one hand and a mic in the other. Hear "Walkin' Shoes" and you see the vocalist settling in at 1:00a.m. with a club full of casual Californians. On jazz standards "Baby, Baby All The Time" and "The Meaning of the Blues," he delivers the sophisticated sadness that is the hallmark of Troup's blues-based ballads.

Throughout "Sings Bobby Troup," the listener is treated to first-rate musicianship. Anthony Wilson's fine guitar work (equaling his performance on "Diana Krall in Paris") and swinging arrangements set the standard.

First introduced to Mark Winkler and Bobby Troup while listening to snippets from this CD on a Delta flight (in-flight music). Couldn't get it out of my mind. This CD has most of those songs and a few others. Great to have one album of Troup, and performed well. These are midcentury classics from the "great American songbook" that are often forgotten, but hipper than the 1920s-1930s standards (Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter, the Gershwins) and just as clever. The music is contemporary with Johnny Mercer, Count Basie and Duke Ellington. Winkler's CD is highly recommended.
