The Gathering

The versatile jazz singer Amber Weekes creates an inventive, heartfelt, and surprising Christmas Album. In a diverse program filled with swingers, ballads, and soulful departures, the singer is joined by top Los Angeles musicians including guitarist Paul Jackson Jr, bassist John B. Williams, and pianist Josh Nelson. The album is produced by Mark Cargill.

Pure Imagination

Having selected several of Southern California’s first-call musicians to work with, Amber displays her remarkable ability to tell a story and paint a musical portrait, using the lyrics of each song as a vehicle to reach you, the listener. Amber and company explore the music and words of an eclectic group of composers/lyricists; from Cole Porter to Oscar Brown, Jr.; from Duke Ellington to Paul Simon; from a popular song written in 1918 (!) to a more contemporary classic by Barry Manilow/Johnny Mercer. Throughout, Amber displays her vocal versatility, including a remarkable way with a ballad.

My Story

Making melodies newly that opens the heart and have it beat anew.

The daughter of singers from Harlem, Weekes’ home oozed with the sounds of Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Barbara Streisand, Diahann Carroll, The Beatles, Leontyne Price, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Nancy Wilson.

Generations earlier, her grandparents, Wilfred and Nettie Weekes served musical giants Lena Horne, Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, and many others inside Weekes’ Luncheonette in the Sugar Hill section of Harlem.

These famous patrons left their musical mark on the family. It was just a matter of time before Weekes would step into and fully claim her musical inheritance.
