Born: March 19, 1979 Primary Instrument: Sax, tenor
The Rick Jensen Trio was started in 1999,We are an improvising group, all of our music is spontaneous, making every performance completely unique. Many different musicians have played with the band, some only once and others have stuck around for a couple of years.Originally formed in Wellington, New Zealand, we are now based London and there are various musicians who come and go from the group, the line-up can change with each performance.The group isn't always a trio but thats usually what it works out to be. We've experimented with all kinds of combinations and instrumentation, often dictated by who was around and able to perform.The group has been as large as 6 and as small as 2. We are essentially a live band and perform as often as possible. We have 16 releases most of which were released in limited edition CDRs and are no longer in print, currently available is A Fundamental Problem(available for download from http://myformicatable.blogspot.com/ ) High Tension a limited CDR and 4 older releases are still available from Postmoderncore records. We are currently working on future releases. Rick is also a member of I-C-E an improvising clarinet ensemble, Nova Scotia a free form abstract trio, The Radioactive Ensemble an international music/art collective and performs in other collaborative projects. He is a photographer and has had over 20 exhibitions in NZ and the U.K. and is currently working on publishing his first book.
