SF Jazz Fest tomorrow! 3-07-2009

by Jenny Scheinman on May 9, 2009

Hi all – i’m playing at the Yerba Buena center tomorrow, Sunday, March 8th as part of the San Francisco Jazz Festival.. gotta get up in a few hours and jump on a plane.. i’m sending this to family and friends as well as my old san francisco list so there may be some redundancies, sorry.. but i just realized that this is my first time leading a band in the bay area since i left in 1999! it’ll be an instrumental show, sorta the new york version of the band I used to play with at Bruno’s of the late nineties.. a wonderful group of players..

me – violin
Steve Cardenas – guitar
Rudy Royston – drums
Greg Cohen – bass

if you know the jazz world a bit you may know of Charlie Haden, Paul Motian, Carla Bley – Steve plays with all of them and has been a mainstay in my NY instrumental bands. Greg also would now qualify as an old friend. He adds his big memorable imaginative sound to many recordings across the genres – Tom Waits, Masada, Ornette Coleman to pick a few.. Rudy is the most recent friend and has the song and the groove all at the same time.. I think he was just out there with Bill Frisell..

and please say hello after the show ok?

all the best,
