Look out for Jenny Scheinman
Around this time of year, Winter Jazzfest is on the brain in New York. Here’s a look at violinist Jenny Scheinman and her hot band, Mischief and Mayhem, at last year’s Winter Jazzfest at Le Poisson Rouge with Nels Cline’s guitar, Todd Sickafoose on bass and Jim Black on drums. People attribute lots of conceivable influences to Jenny Scheinman, including folk roots and classical tendencies; as I hear it, though, her sound is fiercely her own. Thanks to Peter Hum for pointing to this clip.
