Jazz en Rafale presents: Christine Jensen (Teaser)
Saxophonist, composer and orchestra conductor based in Montreal, Christine Jensen has travelled all over the world with her music. Honoured with the Oscar Peterson Award at the 2017 Montreal International Jazz Festival, she has also received two Juno Awards for the recordings she made with her jazz orchestra for the albums Treelines (2011) and Habitat (2014). As well, Jensen co-directs, along with her sister, the trumpet player Ingrid Jensen, the Nordic Connect ensemble. Their latest recording, Infinitude, with Ben Monder on guitar, was nominated for a Juno Award in 2017. For this show, Jensen will be presenting her music in a quartet format, and is honoured to be surrounded by three exceptional jazz artists contributing their improvisations to this project.
