Eastern Standard Time

“Does music get any more quirky-fun hipster than two of America’s greatest jazz treasures, Mark Winkler and Cheryl Bentyne, intertwining their dashing, urbane vocal magic? From the elegant photography to the arrangements and performances, Eastern Standard Time is as timeless as contemporary jazz gets.”
– JW Vibe by Jonathan Widran

“One of the classier discs you will hear this year… outstanding. Both singers have distinctive voices; Bentyne the cooler, jazzier, Winkler the hotter, more soulful, yet together all of those qualities merge into one.” – Bebop Spoken Here by Lance Liddle

“It’s rare to have a male/female vocal combo as good as the team of Cheryl Bentyne and Mark Winkler… A perfect example of the joyful breeze of jazz interplay… Both have an incessant swing and taste in delivery, comfy rapport and a selection of material that makes you want to join in on their party.” JazzWeekly by George Harris
