Vocalist Kristin Slipp and pianist Dov Manski are a Brooklyn-based duo who each have strong reputations as improvisers, composers, and collaborators. Their album A Thousand Julys, released in 2013, features creatively re-imagined versions of jazz standards that alter the phrasing, time signatures, harmonies, and instrumentation of songs such as "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" and "The Way You Look Tonight."

Slipp and Manski, who both studied at the New England Conservatory in Boston, joined Jazz Currents host Keith Hall in WMUK's Takeda Performance Studio before a performance at the Kalamazoo Piano Company.
