Fiona's Comments

Nice take on an old tune by a great band that keep things moving and swinging. Mark Winkler's voice would bench nicely in choir between Al Jarreau and Randy Newman.

About the Album

Going where no one has gone before, Jazz Singer/songwriter Mark Winkler tackles the songbook of legendary 60s/70s icon Laura Nyro–and does it his way. Mark covers Laura’s more well known tunes (Stoned Soul Picnic, And When I Die and Sweet Blindness) and some choice album tracks, revisiting her songs that are melting pots of jazz and pop and soul and taking them to the “jazz” side.

Track Listing

And When I Die; Stone Soul Picnic; California Shoeshine Boy; Time and Love; Sweet Blindness; He’s a Runner; Emmie; Upstairs By a Chinese Lamp; Buy and Sell; Save the Country; Billy’s Blues.
