Mark Winkler and Cheryl Bentyne
Award-winning and critically acclaimed jazz vocalist/lyricist Mark Winkler pairs up with multi-Grammy Award–winning vocalist Cheryl Bentyne, a member of the Manhattan Transfer, to form a dynamic duo that examines the “West Coast Cool" jazz scene of the 1950s. Together and separately they perform songs by Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Julie London and Bobby Troup (to name a few).
Critical Jazz writes that Winkler and Bentyne are “One of the few male/female duets in vocal jazz that finds both participants working on equal footing. Cheryl Bentyne turns in her finest effort in a decade and Mark Winkler continues to wow audiences and critics alike with his spot on vocal performances which seem to grow by leaps and bounds with each subsequent release.”
