On Behalf of the Carlyle Club: Brian Lenair’s “The Cover Story” Pre-CD Release Concert
Nov 19 @ 7:00 pm

Image

An evening with National Recording Artist Saxophonist

Don’t miss the super talented Saxophonist  Brian Lenair as he releases his latest CD entitled THE COVER STORY” at The Carlyle Club!  Come and enjoy DC’s own as he performs the music from the CD.  In addition you will get a copy of his new CD included with the admission to the concert.  The CD will be released in January but you will get yours that night.  Spread the word!

National recording artist, Brian Lenair is a Washington D.C. based contemporary Jazz saxophonist that can blow with the best of them. He has lent his talents performing with or behind some of the greatest recording artists and musicians of our time including national recording greats like, Will Downing, Maysa, Jean Carne, Billy Paul, Angela Bofill, Christopher Williams, Miki Howard, Glenn Jones, Al Jarreau, Vesta, Tony Terry, Phyllis Hyman, Pieces of a Dream, Miles Jaye, Grover Washington, Jr., Peabo Bryson, and George Benson, just to name a few. Lenair credits the works of jazz greats Grover Washington, Jr. and Stanley Turrentine as musical inspiration. Lenair’s first band was 4 1/2 Hours. After four years with the group, he joined Spur of the Moment, who has become a legendary Washington, DC jazz/funk band. As the front man of the group, they astounded audiences with their mixture of jazz and R&B sounds for over 15 years. During that time, the group recorded two CDs entitled Spuraddict and Out of the Shadows, which prominently features Lenair’s talent as a musician, producer and composer.

Despite the growing success of Spur of the Moment, Lenair moved forward to pursue a solo career selling more than 500,000 at live performances over a 12 year period. In 2004, Lenair produced his first CD entitled, The Journey. Creating this CD gave Lenair the opportunity to showcase his talents as an extraordinary saxophonist, producer, entertainer, and songwriter. The first single, “Gone Ridin” is a mixture of soft melodies and up-tempo grooves. The title track “The Journey”, Lenair’s personal favorite, expresses the experience that he and his family endured during his sister’s victorious battle with cancer. Another track is one of his all-time favorites, “I Keep Forgetting” (Every Time You Are Near)”, originally recorded by Michael McDonald. In 2006, Lenair resurfaced with his first inspirational gospel project, Inspirations, Volume 1. This jazzy compilation embodies a total music experience. It features traditional gospel songs such as “Near the Cross” and “Amazing Grace” as well as contemporary gospel songs like “Total Praise”, “Stand” and “Center of My Joy”. Lenair’s soulful notes and expressions are a force to be reckoned with.
