Jenny Scheinman Quintet
In her latest quintet configuration, internationally acclaimed jazz violinist Jenny Scheinman presents music she wrote and honed in the wilderness of northern California during the shutdown. This drum-less ensemble revels in full acoustic resonance, and draws on Scheinman’s early string influences John McLaughlin’s Shakti, Django Reinhardt, and wild west cinema. Set lists also include a handful of her older cherished compositions in celebration of 25 years of band leading, and a return to the stage after two years of covid hibernation. Scheinman has released ten albums of original music, has been featured on numerous Grammy-winning recordings, and has worked closely with a wide range of jazz and Americana artists including Jason Moran, Bill Frisell, Madeleine Peyroux, Nels Cline, Ron Miles, Allison Miller, Lucinda Williams and Lou Reed. Her bi-coastal all-star crew includes includes Dee Dee Bridgewater’s pianist Carmen Staaf, Grammy winning bassist and producer Todd Sickafoose, who co-created the hit musical Hadestown with Anais Mitchell, and alto saxophonist Beth Schenck and guitarist Matt Wrobel, whose 20 year duo collaboration pushes the band's extrasensory perception to the brink of the unthinkable.
