Christine Jensen

Saxophonist and composer Christine Jensen is considered "one of the most important Canadian composers of her generation", according to Globe and Mail jazz critic, Mark Miller, and has emerged as a creative alto and soprano saxophonist on both the Canadian and international jazz scene. "Jensen writes in three dimensions, with a quiet kind of authority that makes the many elements cohere. Wayne Shorter, Maria Schneider and Kenny Wheeler come to mind."

Beth McKenna: Beyond Here

Read "Beyond Here" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Montreal-based multi-reedist Beth McKenna's Beyond Here proves a few things. One, she is a fine arranger of her original compositions for her jazz quintet. Two: she writes. complex-yet-engaging tunes that often go after the groove. And three: there is an expansiveness--compositionally and production-wise--in her music that could probably transfer nicely to larger ensemble work. She studied ...

Remy Le Boeuf: Light as a Word

Read "Light as a Word" reviewed by Jordan Penney


Light as a Word is the debut full-length album from saxophonist and composer Remy Le Boeuf as a leader, and it moves fluidly in liminal spaces. Its format and its performers—a sextet that includes piano, guitar, double bass, drums and tenor and alto sax—are firmly in a jazz idiom. But the songs themselves are more through-composed ...
