Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra featuring Christine Jensen
Shorewood Performing Arts Center
Shoreline, WA
Share this event:

Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra proudly presents special guest Christine Jensen and the world premiere of her newest work, "Cascadian Fragments".

Composer and saxophonist Christine Jensen is considered one of the most important Canadian composers of her generation, according to Globe and Mail jazz critic, Mark Miller.

"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." -Greg Buium of Downbeat Magazine.

Jensen performs and records regularly with her sister Ingrid. They have played together all over the world from Seattle's Jazz Alley to New York's Museum of Modern Art, from an SS Norway Jazz Cruise to a tour of Japan.

Christine Jensen Jazz Orchestra received Juno awards for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year for "Habitat" (2014) and "Treelines" (2013).

This will be the first concert led by Jill Townsend, SWOJO's new Co-Musical Director. Jill is a Canadian composer, band leader and music educator from Vancouver, BC.

Robin Lloyd from knkx will emcee.

Please join us as we celebrate remarkable women in jazz!

This project is supported in part by National Endowment For The Arts, ArtsWA and 4Culture.
