The Cat in the Cream hosted Jensen, who collaborated with these students and others, at a PI Series guest recital Tuesday. A North Vancouver, BC native and Juno Award winner, Jensen is a graduate of Berklee College of Music and has worked with artists such as Professor of Jazz Percussion Billy Hart, Bob Berg, Frank Wess and Billy Taylor. Her guest recital featured chamber music-influenced jazz tunes with a wide variety of instrumentation. Jensen, who took solos on each song that she and the ensemble played, also taught several master classes and coached the students who performed alongside her.
