Henrik Jensen’s Followed By Thirteen
2 Feb 2019 | 7.30pm | £13, £11, £6 under 25s
This quartet truly encapsulate the quality of playing and the cultural diversity that is characteristic of the London jazz scene. Danish bassist Henrik Jensen’s compositions are thoughtful, playful, bursting with energy, at times melancholic and feature on his 3rd album.
The quartet features Rory Simmons, trumpet; Esben Tjalve, piano; Henrik Jensen, bass; Pete Ibbetson, drums.
“Jensen is thoughtful, richly chordal and attractively Charlie Haden-like on the bass” John Fordham, The Guardian.
“The balance between composed and improvisation, as in the best jazz, disappears so that one is left with a complete and perfectly coherent quartet performance” Chris Barber, Jazzviews.
