Dear Music Lovers,

So fortunate to have two gigs this coming week. Both of them are kind of new to me and I am looking forward to catching up with some old friends and hopefully making some new ones! It is rumored that a rather large contingent of like minded folks will be descending upon Corkscrew so I am guessing that reservations are in order. Orenco Station is an interesting venue. Really good food but an odd arrangement fo viewing the performers. I would get there early in order to be closer to the action. You pick, we will be thrilled to see you at either or both!

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
