Over the past twenty years or so, as trumpeter and saxophonist respectively, the Canadian Jensen sisters have each shaped prolific careers in contemporary jazz. They have collaborated with influential names such as Clark Terry, Maria Schneider and Terri Lyne Carrington, working with large and small ensembles, and responding to various commissions to compose for jazz orchestras around the globe.

Tonight’s programme features original and arranged compositions from both Christine and Ingrid (with focus on their Whirlwind Recordings release Infinitude), performed by an 16-piece big band which includes a galaxy of leading American and European musicians who are associated with the label.
