Baronesa by Cristina Morrison

Singer Cristina Morrison releases her new album Baronesa at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, Tuesday September 29, 8:30 PM.

New York based actress, songwriter and singer, Cristina Morrison promises a repertoire of original and upbeat compositions effortlessly combining jazz elements with popular rhythms on Tuesday, September 29th, 8:30 p.m on the release of her new album Baronesa (Jazzheads Records) at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 3 (196 Allen Street, NYC).

Affectionately known as the Baroness of Jazz, Cristina Morrison’s second album, appropriately called Baronesa, draws upon her life experiences – featuring songs in four different languages (English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese) with a diverse mix of music styles – jazz, tango, cha cha, drum & bass, bolero and even spoken word. The songs blend her skills as an actress and a singer and tell stories about her life, her friends and the Galapagos Islands. Cristina is deeply committed to contributing to the environmental and social conscience of Galapagos children. She supports an educational arts program called Arteducarte in all the public schools of Isabela. A portion of the proceeds from her records sales helps sustain the program yearly.

“In 1993, I set foot for the first time on this archipelago to play the Baroness Eloise Von Wagner de Bosquet in a docu-drama film production about the human stories of the islands, soon after I was referred to by all, as Baronesa. The islands enchanted me and I lived there for 7 years. Since then, the islands have been an important part in my creative process; you could call them “my muse”. It is where I write and compose with my “partners in crime”, dream, think, breath, find silence in nature,”
says Cristina Morrison.

In this new album, Morrison wanted to pay homage to all places and peoples that have a deep impact in her life. Each song is unique and the album flows from a deep, strong voice (La del estribo) to a relaxed and sexy sound (Corcovado) to a spoken word piece about dreams (Spanish Dreamland Inquisition) “The sounds are very different from song to song,” explains Ms. Morrison. “My producer, Misha Piatigorsky, pushed me to find the right sound in my voice for each song. There were difficult days in the studio, working each and every sound – making it perfect, but I still enjoyed making this album,” she adds.

Cristina just got off the set of the recently shot indie film Translucido (Thin Walls) by Leonard Zelig where she’s playing a heartfelt cameo, Luna, opposite actor Roberto Manrique and in which two of her tracks have been licensed for the movie. Cristina also joins the ensemble cast of TabulaRaSa Theatre Lab in their theatre production of El Invierno de Abril directed by Ramiro Sandoval. She will take on the role of Evelyn.

Baronesa is Cristina Morrison (lyrics & vocals); Misha Piatigorsky (music & piano); Willard Dyson (drums); Danton Boller (bass); Tatum Greenblatt (trumpet); Dave Pietro (sax).

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
