"A visionary. Matheny's flugelhorn is both hot and cool, wide of range and brilliantly imaginative."
~Phil Elwood, San Francisco Examiner

Renowned flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny will share the stage with celebrated vocalist Clairdee in Soulful Sounds of the Season on Sunday, December 2, from 3:30 to 5:30 pm, at Long Meadow Ranch Winery & Farmstead in St. Helena.

Celebrated for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American musician Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as "the first breakthrough flugelhornist since Chuck Mangione" (San Jose Mercury News). Matheny is an honors graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and the Berklee College of Music, Boston. First introduced to jazz audiences in the 1990s as the protégé of Art Farmer, Matheny has matured into "one of the jazz world's most talented horn players" (SF Chronicle), touring internationally and releasing nine critically acclaimed CDs.

"Clairdee is among the most skilled and appealing singers around'fine songs, beautiful voice, great moves" (San Francisco Examiner). Following in the tradition of Frank Sinatra and Nancy Wilson, Clairdee's genuine manner of conveying emotion and giving each word a clear, personal touch makes her one of America's best singers in any genre.
