In The Wee Small Hours: Music and Memories of My Grandfather
AJ shares her deeply intimate recollections of her grandfather Frank Sinatra, as only she can, while singing the iconic album in its entirety with a voice all her own. The stripped-down presentation of Nelson Riddles classic arrangements (with piano accompaniment by John Boswell) allows for a rare opportunity for intimacy with this incredible piece of American music. Whether you know the album by heart or have never heard it before, this show makes for a very rewarding evening.
Granddaughter of Frank Sinatra and daughter of Nancy, AJ Lambert's style and interpretations of both standards and modern music alike is truly her own. After spending her 20s and 30s as a music supervisor and also as a bassist in other peoples bands, AJ has now moved into singing the American songbook as she understands it: great music written by great writers, no matter what era its from. The live presentation of her take on what makes a standard was born of her similarly-themed radio show on Sirius XMs Siriusly Sinatra, Third Generation. Her monthly shows at the Gardenia in Los Angeles showcase both ends of the spectrum, from modern classics by David Bowie and Liz Phair to the standards of Harold Arlen and Duke Ellington. She is currently working on an album of music that features her unique interpretations of songs by modern artists like Spoon, TV on the Radio and John Cale, and also her versions of some of her grandfathers deep cuts from albums like Only The Lonely.
