Education

I love riding the blurry line between playing and teaching music. It is a multi-layered spiraling rainbow line, filled with twists and turns into infinitely inspirational lands.

Discover Jazz – Ingrid Jensen

In Ingrid Jensen’s hands, the trumpet reaches far beyond its expected potential, ranging from soulful to breezy to contemplative. Along with her quartet, this performance features her sister, saxophonist Christine Jensen. After graduating from Berklee in 1989, Jensen went from playing subway stations in New York to the music halls of Japan, South America, the Caribbean, and almost every country in Europe and Scandinavia. Jensen‘s resume of collaborators includes British singer-songwriter Corrine Bailey Rae, with whom she performed on Saturday Night Live, and Maria Schneider, who led Jensen in Gil Evans’ Porgy and Bess at the San Francisco Jazz Festival. Nominated twice for Canada’s Juno award, Jensen won in 1995 for her album Vernal Fields.

For many Jazz lovers, sisters Christine and Ingrid Jensen represent the pinnacle of creativity and virtuosity in Jazz. Montreal based Christine is now a dual Juno Award winner for her lauded large ensemble work, and older sister Ingrid is renowned in the New York Jazz scene, filling key chairs in the Grammy winning orchestras of Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue.

Ingrid Jensen And Steve Treseler Play Kenny Wheeler

The late, distinctively melodic jazz composer Kenny Wheeler was also a great trumpet player, though, being famously self-effacing, often declined to toot his own horn about his talents. Many musicians sang his praises, though, and when he died in 2014, saxophonist Steve Treseler and trumpeter Ingrid Jensen were inspired to revisit his music. As they traded notes and arrangements, they realized they had to record these tunes which had been so influential to their growth as musicians. So Jensen, herself a Pacific Northwest native, brought herself and her top:notch rhythm section to Treseler’s hometown of Seattle, Wash. to make an album — and play some of it for the public. Jazz Night In America flew to Seattle to capture Steve Treseler and Ingrid Jensen’s tribute to Kenny Wheeler, live from the musician-owned Royal Room.
