Dear Music Lovers,

I will be singing at the wonderful Five O' Three in West Linn on Saturday 11/16. 6:30-9:30 with my good friend, pianist, George Mitchell. George is on everyone's list for recording, accompanist, teacher, you name it! Not only a great musician but the consumate pro. and a class act!  George has been Diana Ross's keyboard guy since I think 1981? I don't know that we will do any Supreme's tunes but the music will be supremely, sublime.  George and I don't get to play together much and I can't wait to re unite with him and catch up. This will be fun and I promise, most excellent! Hope to see you there!

Warm Regards,

Mike Winkle

"“It's always tempting when hearing singers to play the "sounds like" game. I know I caught echoes of Bobby Darin, Mel Torme, Sinatra, and Jack Jones. Nobody grows up in a vacuum: if we're alive, we absorb things. But what struck me about Mike Winkle is that - at this juncture in a career that has included forays in and out of various musical genres - he's a genuinely accomplished jazz vocalist with a voice all his own.” Excerpt from performance review at Jimmy Mak’s Portland, Oregon"  Bernie Knab, Oregon Jazz Scene

"Just when you’re sure that the male of the species has virtually disappeared from the realm of quality jazz/pop singing, along comes Michael Winkle to set your mind at ease. Michael’s new CD is a mixed bag of proven standards but also covers some pop things from the past. Certainly an album highlight is his composition, “The Only Dream" Michael manages to straddle the line between pop and jazz without ever losing his balance."  George Fendel, Oregon Jazz Scene Jazz Society January 2008
