They are joined on stage by Rich Eames on Piano , Dave Tull on Drums and Tim Emmons on bass. The female/male vocal duo is a common element in all forms of music; but in jazz, it's something of a rarity.

It takes a rare combination of mutual artistic respect and conceptual freedom to achieve that proper level of expressiveness and cohesion. Cheryl Bentyne and Mark Winkler have clearly conquered that challenge with their outstanding new CD, West Coast Cool on Summit Records. The much acclaimed vocalist/lyricist Winkler and the multi-Grammy winning Manhattan Transfer member Bentyne first began to collaborate in 2010. This CD is the music-only version of their live show of the same name. There is a $20 cover.

His early musical experience of country and rock has been thoroughly absorbed into a strongly jazz-orientated concept. Burton's interests and enthusiasm, allied as they are to a virtuoso technique, have made him a leading exemplar of contemporary music. However, although others have followed his example, he remains the only vibraphonist of his generation to be measured alongside the other major interpreters and innovators in jazz.
