Mark Winkler

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Mark Winkler

Although his last three CDs have placed high on the Jazz Week charts, and his lyrics have been regularly recorded by over 150 singers (including Dianne Reeves, Cheryl Bentyne, Jackie Ryan and Bob Dorough,) for his latest work jazz singer and lyricist Mark Winkler has created a new album dedicated to fresh interpretations of the work of his own favorite singer/songwriter: Laura Nyro.

“I love the songs of Laura Nyro”, says Winkler. “I am moved by both her music and her words. Her songs create their own worlds, conjuring up cities, cockleshells, exotic lands…and deep passions that touch and inspire me.

Ever since then, I’ve had a burning desire to do her music. I decided that, at last, the time is right for me to tackle it…so I set myself the task of finding the “jazz side” of her amazing work.

”The star among stars is Winkler's exceptional voice, one possessing that indefinable quality that makes it memorable without exactly understanding what is so superb about it. The Laura Nyro Projectbetrays the care and love Winkler and company put into the session; this is an excellent vocal outing by any measure.” Allaboutjazz.com

“...one of those special projects when all the stars are in perfect alignment.” Critical Jazz

“Finding the jazz in Nyro's New York street roots, Winkler does a mighty job of crafting something that would have been jive in lesser hands...
