Hi Reader~

Hope your New Year is off to a good start -- I've got a show I wanted to tell you about (2/22) and some other sundry things that I hope you'll enjoy....

Duo with Jeb Patton 2/22 6:30pm (2 sets)

After doing so much big band last year, I'm excited to start off this one with a duo performance, singing lots of new material (More Manet! Wine songs!) and reveling in the intimacy of this format.

This series at the Intercontinental Hotel is something special -- we'll be in a suite together with a beautiful piano, you'll be served two sets with hors d'oeuvres and wine/beverage all for $55. Very civilized.

the email for RSVPs (it's not ticketed) is: Sebastian.Zischg@ihg.com, and you'll find more info below...

Manet & The Women

This is the year for this project -- after a fun kickoff at the Met, I'm continuing to gather support for the album, and further developing the material for a conceptual concert experience meant for the stage.

If you haven't checked it out:

Bye 2023

I'm a little late for a year-in-review, so I'll just say so long to '23 with a pic from my personal and musical apotheosis of the year -- the "Holidays" concert at Gotham was the culmination of a year of concert development with this restaurant and the beautiful people who run it, and the celebration of year of extraordinary musical collaboration with Ted.

For me, the music truly comes alive once its performed for an audience, and boy did it ever for this amazing crowd! Here's to more like it in the months to come.

Thanks for sharing the journey with me, and sharing your ideas and thoughts (which I welcome!)

More from me soon.

Truly,

Kristen

4.19.24 Happy Friday! Welcome to our fold the crème de la crème of my recently adjourned French class. If you're just joining us (or need to catch up) you can find all the previous J&Js here. Bienvenue! Hope this pairing brings you into the weekend with some new things to taste and listen to... Juice I can’t order a pure cabernet franc when I’m sharing wine with some of my favorite people -- its distinctive aromatic profile and style mean that it’s not for everyone. But for those of us who...

4.12.24 Happy Friday! Happy to be with you again and sharing some hedonistic delights to send you into the weekend...I hope you have a great one, and that today's pairing helps it along! Juice yum Viognier is one of my favorite white grapes. It simply doesn’t know how to hold back: generous in body, aroma and fruit; it’s simply impossible not to love. François Villard is an artist with this grape, working in an area where it grows best — the Northern Rhône of France. This bottle, “Les...

4.5.24 Happy Friday! I was working on this newsletter as the earthquake rumbled -- all is well here and I hope the same with you! So last week before the gig with Ted Nash's Big Band at Dizzy's (so glad I got to see some of you there!) I got to asking saxophonist Chris Lewis what he’s listening to. It’s to him I owe thanks for this week’s musical inspiration... Juice Puech Redon's “Sensitive” 2022 (Languedoc, France) is a peachy/tangerine in the glass - it's zero visibility cloudy, which...
