Ingrid Jensen Quartet  -  Thu May 26, 2016  |  08:00 pm
Admission £ 10.00 ( £ 8.00 concessions)
Canadian trumpeter Ingrid Jensen's big breakthrough came in Europe where, after a tour with the Vienna Arts Orchestra, she became the youngest ever professor at Austria's Bruckner Conservatory. Since then she has become a truly international star, with an intrepid, propulsive - and often mighty funky - approach that contains hints of Miles Davis, Art Farmer and Woody Shaw, but absorbed into a sound that is all her own.

She comes to the Black Swan for the first gig in a tour set up by NorVol, the network of Northern jazz promoters, and linking her with guitarist Jez Franks, drummer Tim Giles, and Tyneside's very own Andy Champion on bass. The group will be playing material specially created by Ingrid for the project, following a couple of days development and rehearsal right here at the Jazz Café.

So, a great gig, by a great quartet - and a world premiere into the bargain!

Tickets for this gig are available from the Jazz Café (0191 222 9882), Reflex CD (0191 260 3246) or online from
