Violinist Jenny Scheinman and drummer Allison Miller are two of the indie-jazz scene’s foremost instrumentalists. Their recently released debut co-writing collaboration, “Parlour Game” (out now on Royal Potato Family Records), intermingles panoramic Americana-infused arrangements with a Brooklyn jazz pocket. Scheinman, Miller and their band will bring their Parlour Game project to The Palms Playhouse on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $22 general/$12 students.  On “Parlour Game,” Scheinman and Miller, along with 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 such diverse musicians as Bill Frisell, Lucinda Williams, Natalie Merchant, Robbie Fulks, Brian Blade, Ron Miles, Nels Cline, Jason Moran, 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.  Jenny Scheinman & Allison Miller’s “Parlour Game” celebrates the popular roots of jazz. It honors the groove, the conversation, the game and the women that made jazz a social music.  It features four musicians who have been at the forefront of American music for nearly 20 years bending genres, creating new ways of playing, mixing it up. Now they get to groove. The name of the band references parlor music, parlor games and the great organizers whose movements were born in the parlor. Imagine the parties they had!  Tickets are available online via The Palms’ website and through Eventbrite, as well as at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland and at the door if the show is not sold out.  For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com, jennyscheinman.com and allisonmiller.com.]]>
