Scheinin

Composer
Woodwinds
Producer

Based in Brooklyn, Jesse Scheinin composes music across a broad range of styles, creating sounds that are beautiful and surprising, weaving together past and present. 

Jesse's recent work as a composer/producer includes a collaboration with the Paul Taylor Dance Company, Bocatuya's Cielo Elena, as presented by the Baryshnikov Arts Center, and Dolly Sfeir's Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt, presented by CUNY Dance Initiative.

His solo project Jesse and Forever has been described by The Fader as:

 

"Lush and Lovely... The tracks are full, and give you the

feeling of looking out on a glimmering body of water

on a bright day.”

Jesse is also a curator of multi-sensory events/festivals: The Bach Store (as featured in the New York Times) and the Forever Festival (presenting NYC avant-garde performance artists).

 

He grew up as a jazz saxophonist, also studying classical clarinet, attended Berklee College of Music, and was mentored by master musicians Joshua Redman, Joe Lovano and Danilo Perez.

“There’s something special about Jesse that goes

beyond what he’s playing on the saxophone. He’s

got this natural storytelling ability.”

-Joshua Redman
