Ingrid Jensen

1967 -

Origin: British Columbia, Canada

Main instrument: Trumpet

Genre: Jazz

Born in Vancouver in 1970, trumpet player Ingrid Jensen grew up in a musical family, with a piano teacher mother and a saxophonist sister, Christine. In 1989, she graduated with high honours from the Berklee College of Music and moved to Austria, where she toured with the Vienna Art Orchestra. She remained in Austria to teach trumpet at the Bruckner Conservatory - their youngest teacher in history at 25 - until a move to the US in 1994, where she joined the all-female big band DIVA. She released her debut album, the award-winning Vernal Fields, that same year. Jensen has since worked with a wealth of artists, including Maria Schneider and Terence Blanchard. With her sister Christine, she released the album Flurry in 2007 and co-leads the trio Nordic Connect. In 2015, she produced Kind of New with keyboardist Jason Miles.
