Ingrid Jensen

Ingrid Jensen has been hailed as one of the most gifted trumpeter of her generation. As a sought-out teacher, collaborator, and soloist, it is easy to see why the New York Times calls her "as versatile as she is vigorous." In the 1990s, she recorded three highly acclaimed CDs for the ENJA record label, becoming one of the most in- demand trumpet players on the global jazz scene. Settling in New York City, she joined the innovative jazz orchestras of Maria Schneider (1994-2012) and Darcy James Argue (2002-present). She has performed with a multi- generational cast of jazz legends ranging from Clark Terry to Esperanza Spalding. Jensen has also performed alongside British R&B artist Corrine Bailey Rae on Saturday Night Live and recorded with Canadian pop icon Sarah McLachlan. More recently, Jensen has been performing with Grammy winner Terri-Lyne Carrington and her Mosaic Project. Jensen’s own bands’ glowing reviews have earned her a loyal fan base around the globe. This year the accolades continue as Jensen has been hailed by the JJA as 2019’s Trumpeter of the Year. Ingrid plays a custom Monette trumpet, built personally by the master builder Dave Monette.
