We’re happy to announce our November large-ensemble production features Ingrid and Christine Jensen with the Whirlwind Jazz Orchestra. The tour takes in a range of dates across England with a stopover in Ireland.
Juno and Grammy award-winning Christine and Ingrid Jensen showcase an exciting programme of jazz compositions featuring the Whirlwind Jazz Orchestra. Ingrid specialising on trumpet and Christine on alto and soprano saxophones, the West Canadian sisters have each shaped fruitful musical careers in modern jazz over the past twenty years, collaborating with influential names such as trumpeter Clark Terry, composer Maria Schneider, drummer Terri Lyne Carrington among many others. Their unique sound defies convention with eclectic blend of influences, ranging from traditional jazz and classical music to American folk and the avant-garde.
The tour features original and arranged compositions from both Christine and Ingrid (with focus on their Whirlwind Recordings release Infinitude), performed by the 18-piece Whirlwind Big Band, which consists of a galaxy of musicians, all being leading solo acts from UK, Europe and USA and all either solo artists or strong associations with the Whirlwind Recordings label.
