Amber Weekes at Catalina Jazz Club August 19th 2021
Available on All Platforms
“’Round Midnight – Re-imagined” is my celebration of the fairytale that Daddy made New York become in my heart and mind, and, with vignettes set (primarily) on a Summer night in New York, the listener gets a peek into the mostly imaginary lives of a few in “the city that never sleeps.”
A longtime fixture in Southern California’s jazz scene and always a delightful presence, Amber Weekes recently released her latest recording, Pure Imagination. She is heard at her best on this collection of standards and lesser-known gems which includes three Oscar Brown Jr. classics, two very different versions of “When October Goes,” and a vocal duet apiece with Sue Raney and Mon David.
Amber Weekes and Trio w/ Tateng Katindig (piano), Richard Simon (bass), Roy McCurdy on drums, and Carol Chaikin on saxophone and flute.
