The Spanish Tinge is a collection of diverse originals, some of which feature the "Spanish Tinge": Afro-Cuban and Brazilian rhythms, odd time claves and the influence of Argentinean tango. The album also includes a jazz treatment of a Yiddish ballad and more exploration of contemporary possibilties for stride piano and early jazz sounds. This diversity of styles reflects Winkelman's inclusive approach to composition, seeking to give more of his varied musical interests a place in his jazz work.
