Don’t miss the Members Party
It’s time for our annual Members Only Party, a gathering of jazz fans and friends who are a loyal part of the Healdsburg Jazz community. The date is Sunday, December 6 – and we’ll have fun music, fine wine and festive nibbles.
The Stephanie Ozer Ensemble will supply the music for this party, with a samba-groove, featuring Fabiana Passoni (vocals), Bob Afifi (flute), Peter Barshay (bass), Kendrick Freeman (drum) and Stephanie on piano. Time is between 3 and 6 pm, a good way to end a holiday shopping weekend.
What’s the catch? It’s for Members Only! If you are a current member, you already have received an invitation. If not, Join Now!
Holiday Jazz & Wine Club Selection
At last, here’s our Holiday selection of hand-picked fine local wines, plus a jazz CD we’re confident you’ll enjoy. Any wine hoping to mingle with all the delectable foods of the holidays must be bold, rich, complex, or daring … so we picked a wine in each of those four categories for this Holiday Club Collection.
- OOH 2010 Brickhill Vineyard Sparkling Syrah Brut Sonoma Coast
- Joseph Jewell 2012 Shiloh Hill Vineyard Chardonnay Russian River Valley
- Acorn 2012 Alegria Vineyards Medley Russian River Valley
- Miro 2013 Reserve Coyote Ridge Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley
To serve as soundtrack for your festivities, we’ve tossed in Canta Brasil, from Kenny Barron, his deepest dive into Brazilian music in over 20 years. He’s backed by Trio da Paz, the same trio you heard play with Barron at the 17th Healdsburg Jazz Festival.
Wear the Jazz
Healdsburg Jazz t-shirts for both men and women are now available through our online store, in co-operation with the Healdsburg Jazz & Wine Club. Sizes range from S-XXXL so you should be able to find something that fits you.
