Fraser Hollins: Aerial

Read "Aerial" reviewed by Pascal-Denis Lussier

One word: Grand.

A fitting description of bassist Fraser Hollins' 2010 album, Aerial, his first as composer and leader, because, vaguely, in many ways, this is a grand album. Before accusing anyone of hyperbole, please read on. Montreal-based, Ottawa-raised bassist Fraser Hollins' reputation as a well-schooled, gifted accompanist and fine, inventive soloist is set ...

Ingrid and Christine Jensen: Infinitude

Read "Infinitude" reviewed by John Kelman

While they've often recorded together over the years--from the collective Nordic Connect quintet and trumpeter Ingrid Jensen's early albums including Now as Then (Justin Time, 2003), to many of saxophonist Christine's recordings, from her two much-lauded Jazz Orchestra albums (most recently Habitat (Justin Time, 2014)) to earlier, small group dates including Look Left (Effendi, 2006)--the two ...

Christine Jensen: Infinitude

Read "Infinitude" reviewed by Roger Farbey

On paper and with this line-up you might be forgiven for regarding this as a new version of the Brecker Brothers with the two West Canadian Ingrid Jensen and Montreal-based sister Christine taking the roles respectively of Randy Brecker and the sorely missed Michael. But this would be a mistake. The Jensens have carved out their ...

The engaging and inventive Transatlantic Conversations: 11 Piece Band is the result of a remarkable collaboration between Swedish pianist Maggie Olin and Canadian saxophonist Christine Jensen. What is exceptional about this Olin/Jensen pairing is the complementary nature of their singular musical visions. This is reflected in shared thematic structure and the creative spirit of the originals ...

Christine Jensen/Maggi Olin: Transatlantic Conversations: 11 Piece Band Live

Read "Transatlantic Conversations: 11 Piece Band Live" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Prior to the release of her marvelous big band outing, Habitat (Justin time, 2013), Canada's Christine Jensen was probably best know as the alto saxophone-playing sister of high profile trumpeter Ingrid Jensen. Sweden's Maggi Olin's major notoriety--on the United States' side of the Atlantic--certainty came from her work as a pianist/composer for the under-recognized quintet, Nordic ...
