Mark Winkler and David Basse
Have a Good Time!

markdavidbasse

In the rarefied world of Male Jazz Singers, Mark Winkler and David Basse have become dear friends. Join them as they make a too infrequent joint appearance at The E-Spot on Sat. Oct 1, 2016. David has recorded quite few songs of Mark’s on his recent CDs, and Mark has sung with David in New York and in Kansas City, where Mark appeared with him on his radio show and at his NPR jam “12th Street Jump.” They share a love of good songs, swing and havin’ a good time!

They will each sing their own songs- and a few duets. Mark will be previewing many new songs for an upcoming CD and Downbeat 4 star reviewed “Jazz and Other Four Letter Words”– and David will be doing songs off “The Hero and the Lover” and “David Basse, Joe Cartwright – Live at Pilgrim Chapel”

Piano: Peter Smith, Bass: Gabe Davis, Drums: Dave Tull, Sax: Ann Patterson

Crafting Great Songs: A Songwriters Workshop
October 23, 2016 @ 12:00 PM

A fun and informative workshop for the novice as well as the more experienced songwriter with a special emphasis on lyric writing. The class starts with Mark’s “Top 5 Tips for Writing Songs” which serve as the template for the whole day. Then, we’ll talk about form, rhyming and the different devices that songwriters need to create a compelling song, all the while playing examples from the songbooks of such writers as Gershwin, Porter (Both Gregory and Cole!) and Rene Marie, among many others. This is all done in a safe, encouraging environment. Each student is given different exercises to be completed in class as well as ones that can be taken with them.
