Montreal- based Christine Jensen will be featuring her quartet for five nights at Toronto's Top O' The Senator as part of her cross-Canada Fall Tour. She is accompanied by some of Canada's finest jazz talents, including Fraser Hollins on acoustic bass, and Greg Ritchie on the drums. She is excited to feature special guest Jon Cowherd (Brian Blade Fellowship/Lizz Wright) from New York on piano.
When Jensen and her quartet put in an exciting date at the Yardbird on Friday it was hard to say which was stronger; the close-knit communication of the players, or the imaginative original tunes from Jensen that inspired them. Either way, Jensen is a leader to watch." - Roger Levesque, The Edmonton Sun, 09/26/04
...a set list of original pieces blessed with long soaring, melodies and shifting substructures that push, pull and probe gently at various modern notions about jazz composition advanced by Maria Schneider, Wayne Shorter and Kenny Wheeler. It's a growing body of work that marks Jensen as one of the most important Canadian composers of her generation..." - Mark Miller, The Globe and Mail
