Wine and song: Harry Connick Jr. at Ste. Michelle

weekconnick27Harry Connick Jr. — jazz artist, composer and actor — is finishing up his summer tour before taking a break and beginning his fall tour in late October. Connick’s career has been soaring since the early-June release of his current CD, “Every Man Should Know.” (Connick debuted the title track on “American Idol” in May). It’s one of his most reflective and personal albums, exploring themes of love, loss, tragedy, hope and celebration with remarkable depth.

In the liner notes for the album, Connick describes “Every Man Should Know” as a collection of songs with “no rules, no limits,” adding, “I don’t recall ever reaching quite as deeply — or confidently — into my inhibition pool.”

Connick, who blends jazz, swing, pop, big band, gospel and funk, is featured on piano and vocals. Backing the Grammy-winning New Orleans native is the long-running Harry Connick Jr. Big Band, with trombonist and vocalist Lucien Barbarin.

7:30 Friday and Saturday at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, Woodinville; $57.50 and $99.50 (800-745-3000 or  ticketmaster.com ).
