On her fourth CD as a leader violinist Jenny Scheinman fronts a septet including guitarist Bill Frisell and trumpeter Ron Miles. Timeless yet wholly contemporary, and with a sonic palette that's as fresh as it is familiar. Filled with selfless performances from a group of players with nothing to prove, 12 Songs represents a significant milestone in a career already filled with high points.
"12 Songs maintains an aura of wistful lyricism and dreamy self-reflection, not unlike the music of (Norah) Jones. But the songs are structurally diverse." - The New York Times
