Over the past decade, violinist and singer Jenny Scheinman has followed her boundless curiosity across various musical genres -- from her folk roots through jazz and even a foray into singing. The versatile performer and composer has worked with the likes of guitarist Bill Frissell, singer Norah Jones, and more recently, played on the Lou Reed and Metallica collaborative album Lulu.
On Monday night, Scheinman celebrates the release of Jenny Scheinman Presents Mischief & Mayhem, her seventh album but the first recording with her four piece at Le Poisson Rouge.
The quartet, Jenny Scheinman’s Mischief & Mayhem, is comprised of the violinist and guitarist Nels Cline (of Wilco), bassist Todd Sickafoose and drummer Jim Black. The cross-genre experimental super-group plays blends of rock, folk, jazz and more.
