ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sweet Spot is the follow up to Winkler’s 2009 CD "Till I Get It Right" which was chosen as one of the 10 Best Vocal CDs of that year by
Jazz Times Magazine. "Sweet Spot" once again showcases Winkler’s skill as a consummate lyricist and singer, but this time features
him on 4 standards including "On Broadway" and "But Not For Me", As well as Andre Previn’s "Like Young"and Bobby Troup’s "Their Hearts
Were Full of Spring". The title cut is a Winkler original that is a duet between him and Vocalist Supreme Barbara Morrison, with a guitar
solo by Grant Geissman. Always known for the company he keeps, this time he ups the ante with such jazz stars as Billy Childs,
Grant Geissman, Bob Sheppard, Greg Hutchinson and Anthony Wilson.

As a vocalist, Mark Winkler offers a smooth, hip contemporary sound that has been compared to Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling. With
his impeccable phrasing and sure sense of swing, Mark has been pleasing fans at venues on both coasts

“If Mark Murphy is the reigning king of vocal hipsterism, then Mark Winkler ranks directly behind Kurt Elling among heirs apparent. As
a lyricist, he is as consummate a traveler in the world of Dave Frishberg drollness as he is in the land of Cole Porter urbanity.”
- Christopher Loudon/Jazz Times May 2009

“Mark Winkler writes the kind of songs that should provide him with a comfortable spot in the Great American Songbook- if anyone’s
still interested in melodic, literate and emotionally touching songs.”
- Don Heckman/LA Times
