Editorial Reviews


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

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

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 --LINER NOTES

This is not my first Mark Winkler CD, but it is my favorite. There are a lot of things to mention here, but the first thing - you know that feeling of desperately needing music to transform the environment? In a way that for jazz fans, only jazz does? Usually I only get that from "old" albums, and often I am bored by the new people that, say, Jonathan Schwarz introduces me to on NPR on the weekends. But this album really gives you that gift. I particularly love when an album's lush orchestration can make the riches of the lyrics incidental when you are busy cleaning the house or getting dressed and at the same time, for those lyrics to be so good that the songs can actually keep you company when you want to lie on the couch and listen carefully to every word. I like lyrics that make you feel less lonely, more connected to universal things, but at the same time have something original to say. (never quite figured out that paradox, but it is the essence of jazz, I know that, and this album hits the spot in that regard!)

Anyway, this album has a lot of riches. Every purchase counts in this day and age, and I am reminded of a newspaper story I recently read about what makes people feel better and what is worth money in this era and I was so pleased to have spent such a little bit for so much pleasure in this album! I also really enjoyed having a WHOLE album of songs that had so much variety. It makes me sound dated, but I like being "stuck" with all the songs of a complete album, because some (a lot on this one) pop right away and you want to play them over and over for the pleasurable feelings they cause, but others you might avoid because they have a melancholy essence or don't immediately grab your attention.

Mark Winkler is an amazing jazzer. He has a nice voice, he can swing with the best of them, and he always has superb musicians on his albums (the band is just great on this new album!).What really sets him apart, though, is his ORIGINALITY...and this album is a prime example. Most of the songs on this CD are new Winkler compositions (he writes the lyrics) and they are an amazing collection of songs, ranging from the sardonic to the comic to the romantic to the refective. Almost all of them work really well...and several of them are likely to become classics. I think TILL I GET IT RIGHT sounds as if it already IS a classic; COOL, with Cheryl Bentyne, is so hip and so much fun that everyone will want to do it; and the ballads IN A LONELY PLACE and YOU MIGHT AS WELL LIVE are total knockouts. I've liked Mark's previous jazz albums EASY THE HARD WAY and SINGS BOBBY TROUP, but I think this goes one step farther and is his best album to date. If you're looking for something musically sophisticated, fun and unpredictable, then this album's for you. If you want to know more about the songs on this album, and how they developed, check out Mark's blog on his website: [...] I did, and I found it really interesting.

What a terrific little album this is! I was one not familiar with Mark Winkler before buying this, but I'm one who has bemoaned the relative lack of young male jazz singers. Mr. Winkler is a cause for less bemoaning.

These are songs written by various other musicians, but almost all with Mark Winkler's lyrics. In the main, these songs are dripping with cool, sweating with swing. You'll be snapping your fingers so much in listening to this that, as you hit the repeat button on your player, your wrists will feel it. Check out "Future Street," "How to Pack a Suitcase," and the title track (#1), and you'll immediately know what I mean. With Jamieson Trotter on keyboards, and the great Bob Sheppard on saxes, this whole set just sizzles.

That's not to say Mr. Winkler can't deliver an effective ballad. "In a Lonely Place" (with a terrific trumpet solo from Ron Blake) is one such number. Another is the wonderful set-ender, "You Might As Well Live."

But Mr. Winkler's cool delivery reminds me of a young Mark Murphy, from "Rah" days. Not coincidentally, Murphy writes the heartfelt liner notes. He notes Winkler's talent, his smoothness, his natural delivery - not unlike Murphy's own.

Murphy is not the only vocal heavyweight to acknowledge Mr. Winkler's potential. Cheryl Bentyne, of the Manhattan Transfer, duets "Cool" with him, and they sound perfect together.

The July issue of "Downbeat" just arrived, with the Critics' Poll. No mention of Winkler amongst Male Vocals, Rising Star. A serious omission, IMO. He not only should be on that list, he should be towards the top of it. RC

Sings Bobby TroupI am a huge fan of Naked Boys Singing. Mark Winkler was the co-creator of that ground breaking show. When I found out he was a Jazz singer, I just knew I had to listen to his work. He has done a number of amazing albums; Easy the Hard Way, Ebony Rain, City Lights. This new one, TILL I GET RIGHT is a winner. The witty & smart lyrics wrapped around lush melodies and arrangements make this a MUST HAVE for any true Jazz fan. GET IT NOW. By the way, I am excited to learn that Mr. Winkler is returning to the musical theater arena with 2 new projects, BARK, set to open in New York this fall and PLAY IT COOL, which just wowed them at The New York Musical Theater Workshop. I will be the first in line to see them.
