AdvertisementThe violin’s potential as a vehicle for jazz expression was overlooked for decades, but a handful of intrepid musicians have made the instrument an essential part of the 21st century soundscape.
In the San Francisco String Trio powerhouse East Bay violinist Mads Tolling has found equally formidable improvisers in guitar star Mimi Fox and bassist/vocalist Jeff Denson, dean of instruction as the California Jazz Conservatory. The collective can transform just about any kind of tune into a combustible situation, like on the trio’s 2017 debut album May I Introduce To You, a jazz tribute to the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s — music they revisit for this performance.
Sharing the double bill is violinist Jenny Scheinman with her newest project. A veteran of the ensembles of Bill Frisell and Scott Amendola, Scheinman has worked with a staggering array of musicians including Norah Jones and Aretha Franklin, and released ten acclaimed albums as leader. Her 2005 release, 12 Songs, made The New York Times’ Top 10 Albums list, and her latest is the Americana-infused jazz project Parlour Game with drummer Allison Miller.
