Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society Presents Acclaimed Jazz Violinist Jenny Scheinman and her Quintet
Sun. July 24th @ 4:30pm - 7:00pm$35
Internationally acclaimed jazz violinist Jenny Scheinman presents music she wrote and honed while 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.
She is also sure to include a handful of her older cherished compositions in celebration of 25 years of band leading. Scheinman has released ten albums of original music, collected a handful of Grammys, 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.
Scheinman’s bi-coastal all-star crew includes Dee Dee Bridgewater’s pianist Carmen Staaf, Grammy-winning bassist and producer Todd Sickafoose who co-created the hit musical Hadestown and alto saxophonist Beth Schenck and guitarist Matt Wrobel whose 20-year duo collaboration pushes the band’s extrasensory perception to the outer limits.
Jenny Scheinman – Violin; Beth Schenck – Alto Sax; Carmen Staaf – Piano; Matt Wrobel – Acoustic Guitar; Todd Sickafoose – Bass
