Bright Moments: Jenny Scheinman & Allison Miller’s Parlour Game

@ 7:00pm

Tickets: $27 (available through the Coastal Jazz website)

In their latest endeavour Parlour Game, the dynamic duo of violinist Jenny Scheinman and drummer Allison Miller, along with the formidable pianist Carmen Staaf and bassist Tony Scherr, dig into the rootsier elements of jazz. The repertoire explores swing, gogo, backbeats, and ballads. Scheinman and Miller are both artists with eclectic backgrounds having collaborated with musicians as diverse as Bill Frisell, Brian Blade, Nels Cline, Jason Moran, Lucinda Williams, Natalie Merchant, Toshi Reagon, and Rene Rosnes.

In Parlour Game they explore the classic format of the piano quartet and strive for excellence in simplicity—the perfect groove and a melody that sticks.
