Jenny Scheinman & Bill Frisell, Live In Concert: Newport Jazz 2012

Written by Patrick Jarenwattananon from WBGO-FM

The violinist Jenny Scheinman and guitarist Bill Frisell have both developed reputations for flexibility — for being able to collaborate with any musicians from country rockers to straight-ahead swing barons. Appropriately, they’ve been working together in bands for quite a long time now, including in Frisell’s John Lennon tribute earlier in the festival. This duo performance features the two alone together, working out stripped-down versions of Scheinman’s fiddle tunes.
