Eastern Standard Time

Eastern Standard Time by Mark Winkler & Cheryl Bentyne Album Review(9/10)

Does music get any more quirky-fun hipster than two jazz treasures, Mark Winkler and Cheryl Bentyne, intertwining their dashing, urbane vocal magic to explore the cool divine madness of Lou Reed’s daring “Walk on the Wild Side”? Somewhere Andy Warhol is snapping his fingers, diggin’ this and the other fresh discoveries on the duo’s Eastern Standard Time. It’s a deeply intimate and soulful continuation of the witty, heartfelt and eminently swinging conversations that they started on their critically acclaimed 2013 dual album West Coast Cool.

Rating: 9/10
