Here are videos of three tunes I performed this past July at the Carlyle Club in Alexandria, Va. They’re posted also on the WeintraubMusic YouTube Channel. Backing me up were: Wayne Wilentz – piano; James King – bass; Jim West – drums. The videography is by Bobby Spero. Let me know what you think.

For those who couldn’t catch me at Carlyle Club on July 24, I’ve just posted some photos that Aretha Grayson took that night on my Gallery page. Here are a four from the collection. Backing me up were Wayne Wilentz (piano), James King (bass) and Jim West (drums).
The Carlyle Club
I’m thrilled to be one of several singers performing in “A Midsummer Night’s Swing” at the Carlyle Club in Alexandria, Va., on Thursday, July 24, starting at 7 p.m. It’s a singers’ showcase, featuring the lovely and talented: Anthony Compton, Kim Mills, Jeanine Greene, Kathy Farmer, Kiris Powell, Tacha Coleman Parr and Tim Gavagan, who will also emcee the event. Backing us up will be the Wayne Wilentz Trio.
I have to confess it’s my first time at the Carlyle, 411 John Carlyle Street in Alexandria, either as a performer or a listener, but I’ve heard it’s a terrific room and that the food — “classic American cuisine” — is mighty fine.
