Cassandra Trenary and James Whiteside tore it up last Friday at Midsummer Night Swing with their rhumba, set to “Sway,” performd by the Brooklyn-based band Margi and the Dapper Dots. Margi, aka Margaret Gianquinto, sang a set of standards including Irving Berlin’s “Steppin’ Out with My Baby,” and the slow, romantic waltz “Far Away Places.” She has a nice, vintage-sounding voice, velvety and friendly, not too pushy. I did a little piece for the Times about it, which you’ll find here.
